Kenai Peninsula Borough

What are Kenai Peninsula Borough Public Records?

According to the APRA, Kenai Peninsula public records include information received or developed by a public agency, or a private contractor on behalf of a public agency. Public records may be books, writings, papers, drafts, and all other records, regardless of physical characteristics or format. The act states that public records also include records preserved for the agency's informational value or as evidence of the agency's operations. However, Alaska law states that not all records should be open to public disclosure. The following are examples of exempted information:

  • Public health and medical records
  • All records that would disclose confidential procedures and techniques used for law enforcement prosecutions or investigations
  • Proprietary information and trades secrets
  • All records where disclosure would interfere with law enforcement efforts and proceedings
  • Juvenile records unless the law requires disclosure
  • Adoption proceedings and vital statistics
  • Records containing plans, procedures, or programs, used to restore, maintain, or establish security
  • Any information that could endanger the physical safety or life of an individual
  • All records considered confidential under law

In addition to official sources, public county records may also be accessible from third-party websites. Record seekers may opt to use these non-governmental platforms to search for a specific record or multiple county records. However, users will need to provide enough information to assist with the search, such as:

  • The address of the requestor
  • A case number or file number (if known)
  • The location of the document or person involved
  • The name of the subject involved in the record (not juvenile)
  • The last known or current address of the registrant

Government agencies do not sponsor third-party sites. Because of this, record availability and results may vary.

Kenai Peninsula Borough Crime Statistics

The Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS) publishes annual crime statistics for the state as received from local law enforcement.

Nonetheless, the state's crime reports include figures from Kenai, Homer, and Soldotna cities, the three most populous cities in Kenai Peninsula Borough.

In 2020, the report showed a total of 291 offenses for Kenai, 158 for Homer, and 132 for Soldotna. Reported offenses include criminal homicide, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. However, both Homer and Soldotna had no criminal homicide report in 2020. Furthermore, Homer also did not report any robbery throughout the year.
