The Florida State Records website provides every Florida resident with tools to access public records. This ensures Florida residents are able to use their right to access and obtain public records, in accordance with the Florida Public Records Act, which presumes all government information and records are available to the public.
This information is available to all members of the general public, and is given immediately and concisely without requiring any personal information, unless such information is confidential by law.
The Florida State Records website contains information about criminal records, court records, vital records and includes over 185 million transparent public records.
The state of Florida started generating public records in 1849 and these records usually include information from 67 counties. Both third party and government websites have increasingly carried these records online as digitization has become the standard for public records. This increase access helps to ensure Florida abides by the commitment of the United States of America to remain a fair and just society for all.
