Rhode Island Court Records

The Rhode Island court records website was designed with the mission of ensuring easy access to records, including civil records and criminal records. It also provides an overview of the state’s judicial structure, the jurisdiction of the different courts, and an overview of how courts work.

Access to public records is preserved under the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act, which gives individuals the right to see and obtain written documents, photographs, and other forms of public records—except where exempted by law.

This website contains a large compilation of public records, including court records, criminal records, arrest records, sex offender information, and vital records. Users can narrow their search using the intuitive built-in search function. Records and data are compiled from courts and government agencies located across many of the counties in the state. Please note that results may vary.
