Public records are created by government bodies to record incidents and events where the government's officials and authorities became involved. This is typically associated with court records and police records, but can also include property records where a notary was needed, or vital records recording the details of a marriage. These records are public by law to ensure the transparency of the society, and can be found online, through your local municipal authority, or via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Essay Questions:

1) How can society improve through the use of digital public records?

2) As a public employee, how do you believe access to public records can affect you and your community.
