L.A. Times: Send Us Your Public Records!

This is a great idea:

Since the pub lic cor rup tion scan dal broke last sum mer in the city of Bell, hun dreds of read ers have voiced con cerns to The Times about po ten tial prob lems at the gov ern ment agen cies in their communities.

Some have dug into government records and shared their findings with Times reporters. Others have expressed confusion and frustration about the sometimes bureaucratic process of obtaining information from City Hall.

With this in mind, The Times has launched a new California Public Records guide and clearinghouse.Times reporters Sam Allen and Abby Sewell have prepared a simple, detailed guide designed to help the public understand its rights and navigate the process of obtaining government records.

The Times also en cour ages read ers to share gov ern ment re cords you con sider news worthy or in ter est­ing. Send us doc u ments, and a Times staffer will re view them and post them to this site.
