Record Retention & Disposition

Permanent Record Disposal
All requests for record disposal must be submitted for approval to Lana K. Davis at 717.240.6200, Record Retention Officer.

No records may be destroyed until approval has been granted.

Permanent record disposal requests will be sent on to the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts (AOPC) for final approval before the records may be disposed of.

Non-permanent record disposal request approvals will be made by the Record Retention Officer.
