FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

The Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) is required under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to disclose records requested in writing by any person. However, we may withhold information pursuant to nine exemptions and three exclusions contained in the statute. FOIA applies only to federal agencies and does not create a right of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or by state or local government agencies. Each state has its own public access laws that should be consulted for access to state and local records.

If you plan to make a FOIA request to CSOSA, please first browse CSOSA’s Electronic FOIA Reading Room, which contains information already available to the public.
