Florida Law and Public Records Guidelines

Police Reports are confidential documents within the first 60 days of the accident. As such, they are only available within this confidential timeframe to exempt parties; defined as involved parties, their representatives, attorneys and insurance carriers, as well as qualified media members.

Florida traffic crash records law Section 316.066 mandates that all accident Police Reports less than 60 days old MUST be accompanied by a Sworn Statement, a copy of your current photo identification and proof of exemption that allows you access. After 60 days, Police Reports are deemed public records and may be obtained without identification, sworn statement or proof of exempt status.

WARNING Any person, knowing that he or she is not entitled to obtain information made confidential by the above law, who obtains or attempts to obtain such information, is guilty of a felony of the third degree.
