Search open warrants and police reports, request fingerprinting services, background checks, body-worn camera recordings and more.

Request Police Reports & Records

To request any of the public records listed below, you can call, email, or you can make the request in person. The fastest way to make your request is to use our online system, the Police Public Records Center.

If you’d like to see a police report from a traffic crash, use the Florida Traffic Crash Reports online system.

You can also Search Open Warrants to find out if there is an open warrant out on you or someone you know.

Police Reports

Traffic Crash Reports

A Traffic Crash Report describes what happened during a car accident. These reports are often necessary for insurance purposes and may be requested in person or by mail. After the accident, it may take up to 10 days before the report is available.

Since personal information about the parties involved is confidential, only the parties involved in the crash have access to these reports after they are filed.

After 60 days, the reports are open to the public.

If requesting a Traffic Crash Report by mail, complete and notarize the Sworn Statement for Traffic Crash Report Information form and send it with your request.

O/I Reports

Another type of police report is called an Offense/Incident Report, also called an O/I Report. These reports detail incidents like robberies, burglaries, assaults and car thefts. Copies are often necessary for insurance purposes. Some reports or portions of them may be exempt or confidential under law.

If requesting a copy, please provide:

  • Case number (if known)
  • Date
  • Location of the incident
  • Names of people involved

Background Checks, Clearance Letters and Fingerprinting Services

Background Checks and Clearance Letters

We can do criminal background checks on anyone and then provide a Police Clearance Letter, if requested. Police Clearance Letters may be obtained in person, by mail, or via the Miami-Dade Police Public Records Center.

You’ll need to provide us with the following information if you’d like a Police Clearance Letter:

  • Name (including maiden, and other additional names)
  • Race
  • Sex
  • Date of Birth
  • Requestor’s name, address, and telephone number

Fingerprinting Services

Fingerprinting services are provided at specific District Stations throughout the County. For fingerprinting services, you must bring $15 and:

  • Two valid forms of ID, at least one with a photo
  • Fingerprinting card

We do not provide fingerprinting cards. Fingerprinting cards should be provided by the organization requesting that you get fingerprinting done.

Body-Worn Camera Recordings

Body-worn cameras capture video of police interactions with the public at crime scenes, accidents or other official law enforcement matters. You may request copies of body-worn camera footage online through the Police Public Records Center, in person or by phone.

In your request, try to be as specific as possible to help us locate the video you need. Provide details like the date, time, location, officer’s name or badge number and police case number. Labor costs may increase if the video is lengthy, so narrow the scope as much as possible.

How to get a copy of the recording:

  1. Submit a body-worn camera footage request.
  2. You will be contacted when your request has been received.
  3. You will receive a cost estimate.
  4. Your payment acts as a deposit and authorizes the Department to process your request.
  5. The records are located and any necessary information removals are made.
  6. You will be notified of the final cost. (If you did not provide contact information, you will need to contact us to find out the status of your request.)
  7. If the actual cost exceeds the deposit, you must pay the full amount due before the records can be released. If the final cost is less than the deposit, you will get a refund.
  8. Your records may be picked-up in person, or mailed for an additional cost.

These audio and video recordings may contain information that is exempt or confidential and will be blocked or removed before being released. This may depend on your role in the incident, so keep this in mind if you choose not to identify yourself.

It may take up to 21 days before body-worn camera footage is available for release.

Learn more about body-worn cameras in the Police Community Programs page.

911 Call Recordings

Audio recordings of 911 calls are available for 60 days after the call was received.

Requests should be made online through the Police Public Records Center, and when ready, the recording will be available through there.

Allow up to 60 days for your request to be processed. Copies may not be picked up in person.

Customized Reports

You can request customized reports on Calls for Service, Incident Reports, and Crash Reports for the unincorporated portions of Miami-Dade County.

If the report is to include all incidents, calls for service, or crashes, you must provide:

  • The specific address.
  • For an area report, also include the mile radius.
  • Date range

Sealed and Expunged Records

When information about a particular arrest is removed from public record, it is considered to be sealed. You may get a copy of your sealed record by presenting proper identification in person at the Central Records Bureau Public Counter. The Central Records Bureau does not accept or process applications to seal or expunge a record.

Expunging a criminal record involves destroying all information and paperwork associated with a particular arrest. Expunged records are completely destroyed and are not available.

For further information on Sealed/Expunged Records, contact the Felony/Misdemeanor Court, Expungement Division, located at:

Richard E. Gerstein Justice Building
