Protection of public records.

The department will protect its public records from damage or disorganization. Public records requests will not be allowed to interfere with essential functions of the department.
All inspections of public records will be supervised by a department staff member. Staff members will not allow records to be inspected or copied by anyone who is intoxicated, violent, abusive, threatening, or otherwise disruptive. Anyone who displays these characteristics during a records inspection may have the inspection terminated by department staff.
Staff members who are supervising the inspection or copying of public records will make sure of the following:
• Records are not torn, mutilated, marked, or otherwise harmed by the requestor.
• Inspection and copying activities do not disrupt the department's operations.
• Full, prompt, and courteous assistance is provided to the requestor.
