Freedom of Information Act Fee Schedule

In accordance with the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), S.C. Code Ann. §30-4-30, et seq. (1976, as amended), persons have the right to inspect and copy public records.  FOIA requests for public records of the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office should be directed to:

Darlington County Sheriff’s Office, ATTN: Public Information Officer, P.O. Box 783 Darlington, SC 29540.

In order to help offset the costs of searching for, retrieval and redaction of public records from the DCSO, the following fee schedule applies:

14-day reports furnished          $0.35 per page
under §30-4-30(D)(2)
(in-person requests only)

Hourly staff time:                   $20 per hour (if request requires specialized personnel, e.g., IT, legal, executive, etc., hourly rates could increase)

Copies of documents              $0.35 per page

CDs or DVDs
(audio, video, photos, etc.)     $5.00 per disc

A deposit of 25% of the estimated costs for searching, retrieval, redacting and reproducing records may be required before searching for or making copies of records.  The full balance must be paid at the time of production of the records.

Inspection, copying, and production of records are subject to all applicable exemptions, redaction, and/or exclusions provided by FOIA or other state or federal laws.  If public records are available and capable of electronic transmission by DCSO, per page copying charges do not apply.  However, staff time for searching, retrieval and redaction will still apply.  Records not in electronic format may, in DCSO discretion, may be converted to and transmitted in electronic format; in such event, there will be an additional charge for staff time for converting to electronic format.


PURSUANT TO S.C. CODE ANN. §30-2-50, OBTAINING OR USING PUBLIC RECORDS FOR COMMERCIAL SOLICITATION DIRECTED TO ANY PERSON IN THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA IS PROHIBITED AND IS PUNISHABLE BY A FINE OF UP TO $500 AND IMPRISONMENT UP TO ONE YEAR, OR BOTH.
