The City of Norfolk FOIA Team handles requests for records held by the Norfolk Police Department, the Norfolk Fire Marshal, the City Treasurer’s Office and by the City. When submitting a FOIA request, citizens are asked to indicate whether their request is for records related to Public Safety (for police or fire records) or whether their request is for a Public Record (records related to general City administration, such as Planning, Neighborhood Quality or other departments). Requests for each type will be sent to the correct department and processed in accordance with the Virginia Freedom of Information Act. 

The City of Norfolk FOIA Team is ready to help you request records: 

PLEASE NOTE: The Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) does not require a governmental body to create records, to do legal research, or to answer questions about the records we might provide.
