Through the use of public records like Charlotte County Public Records, the government keeps the public informed of some information that is required by the law to be public in the first place. These keeping of these records are also mandated by the law not only because they could be used to inform the public, but because it is in the best interest of the government to keep a paper trail that other people could trace should there be a need. They are also the best evidence that one could provide in order to prove that something had happened.
An open government requires that the people are aware of what the government is doing, and while there are some things that have to be kept from the generals public because they are of a sensitive nature or because the general public had no business knowing that information in the first place, typically, everything that the government would do would require some sort of paper trail for others to check and follow. It would be through this paper trail that corrupt practices may be detected and outright crimes are investigated and ended. This is the reason why government records and public records are synonymous.
Public records are afforded two great advantages, the first is the fact that they are available to the general public at all times, and the second is the fact that they are afforded the presumption of regularity such that whatever is written on the records would be considered to be true and accurate and the person who would claim otherwise would have the burden of overcoming that presumption in order to prove his or her allegation.
Typically, copies of government records may be requested by anyone at any government office, though it must be noted that there are some records that would only be available at one given office because the law requires that office to keep those records to themselves, not only as a means of logistics but also so that those who would request for the records would have one place to go to when they would request for the same. This is typically the case for vital records and for records that are related only to one government agency where the other agencies have no input into. A request for records may also be done either through mail or in person, and while each would have their own set of advantages and disadvantages related to them, ultimately, it would be up to the person who desires the record to choose which of the two methods he would chose.
Charlotte County Court Records Public Access may be done online through the use of online databases. These are databases that are mostly privately owned, but despite that, they could provide substantially the same information as the official sources, usually for a fraction of the cost as an official search, and the platform that they are using ensures that the search would be faster and more efficient. Note, however, that because they are not official sources, the information contained within these databases could not be used as official sources in any official proceeding.
