About Open Records

The Georgia Open Records Act and related subtitles of Georgia law authorize a personal inspection of public records at a reasonable time and place unless prohibited by a court order or otherwise exempted by law. However, no public official or personnel is required to prepare reports, summaries or compilations not in existence at the time of an Open Records Request.

Please note:  The Cobb County Attorney’s Office is not the official custodian of records for all county departments. Governing authorities have designated the following persons as official record custodians as allowed by O.C.G.A 50-18-71:
