Reports And Background Checks By Mail

To obtain reports or background checks by mail, send a letter to the Central Records Unit with the information listed below and a self-addressed stamped envelope and a phone number you maybe reached at for the cost of your request. Prepayment must be received prior to being mailed your request.

IMPORTANT: If you wish to obtain a traffic accident report within 60 days of the incident, Florida law requires that you complete a Request for Traffic Crash Report Information Form indicating you are entitled to receive it (please review the form to make certain you are eligible). Mail the completed and signed form with your letter of request to the address below. After 60 days, the form is not necessary and anyone may obtain a copy of the report.
