The Lucas County Records Center maintains records both public and private for all Lucas County Departments in accordance with Ohio Public Records Law and record retention schedules as provided by the Ohio Revised Code and the Ohio Records Advisory Board.

The Records Center stores over 27,000 boxes for 38 different county departments. Each week the Records Center receives up to 20 records requests from our client departments. We also schedule and pull approximately 4,000 boxes a year for destruction in accordance with each department's record's schedule.
