Requesting Jail Records

Requesting Jail Medical Records

No medical information on an inmate will be released without this completed form or without a court order signed by a judge. Once the form has been completed and signed, it may be submitted in person, by mail, email, or fax to:

Snohomish County Corrections
Attn: Medical Records Requests
