Records Clerk A. Vargas
The Act is triggered when a person submits a written request to the Milam County Sheriff's Office. The request is limited to records or information already in existence. The Act does not require the Sheriff's Office to create new information, to do legal research, or to answer questions. In some cases, the request for information may concern protected information that can not be released.
The Sheriff's Office has created a form for making requests for public information. Filling out this form is the preferred method for making requests, it helps the requesting person provide the necessary data needed to process the requests more efficiently.
