Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires that all public bodies make their records available to the public, subject to certain exemptions. To make a request to inspect or copy public records, a FOIA request should be submitted to a designated FOIA Officer. The directory of designated FOIA Officers is included below and is listed by department. If you are not sure what department to submit your request to, you may submit it to any one of the designated FOIA Officers and he/she will forward it to the appropriate department or departments.

FOIA requests for police records should be sent or delivered in person to 200 S Vine, Park Ridge, Illinois 60068.  Other requests should be sent or delivered in person to the Deputy City Clerk, 505 Butler Place, Park Ridge, Illinois 60068.
