Hillsborough County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What Are Hillsborough County Arrest Records?

Hillsborough County arrest records are official summaries of apprehensions that happen in the county following criminal activities in the territory, as documented by the Sheriff’s Office and its divisions. These records feature information surrounding the suspected crimes, the arrested person, and details surrounding the actual apprehension. Hillsborough arrest records cannot be used as proof of criminal involvement because these do not contain information on final dispositions but only show that the subject was detained in relation to a case. Individuals can find the following details:

  • The suspected crimes
  • The arrestee’s full name, sex, date of birth, and other demographic information
  • The time and date of apprehension
  • The location of arrest and detainment facility
  • The name of the arresting officer, agency, and detaining facility
  • First court date or case status

The county Sheriff’s Office provides Hillsborough arrest records for interested individuals. To obtain a local arrest history, make online arrest inquiries or visit the Sheriff’s Office at 2306 North Faulkenburg Road,

Tampa, FL

How Do I Visit an Inmate in Hillsborough County Jail?

All visits to inmates in any Hillsborough County are through the Sheriff’s Office Video Visitation Center on the jail premise and by appointments only. Interested persons can register online and should schedule visits at least seven days beforehand using the approved third-party website. As inmates in Hillsborough County jails can only have up to three visits weekly, appointments are on a first-come, first-serve basis. There can be up to three persons per visit, children included.

According to the center’s visitation rules, visits are from Tuesdays to Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. After scheduling visits, appropriately dressed visitors should check-in at the center at least 15 minutes before the scheduled hour. Failure to do this will result in the cancellation of visits, which will still be removed out of the inmate's allotted number of visits. The links for scheduling visits, as well as the visitation rules, are available on the center’s website. Individuals must adhere to these rules as inappropriate conduct can lead to visitation bans or criminal charges.

Where and How to Find Hillsborough County Inmate Information?

The Hillsborough County Sheriff has records of all inmates currently in the jails located in the county. The Sheriff’s Office provides an inmate lookup tool on its website for finding specific inmates. Visitors can search by name or booking number. The search result provides information like an individual's charge, bond amount, and booking photo. Alternatively, call (813) 247-8300 to reach the inmate information line and inquire about an inmate.

What Are Hillsborough County Court Records?

Hillsborough County court records are court-generated materials and fillings that contain information on civil, criminal, probate, and traffic proceedings that happen in any court within the county’s jurisdiction. Examples of these Hillsborough public records include electronic or paper case files, dockets, transcripts, orders, indexes, and other recordings of administrative actions done by a court in the territory.

The Clerk of the Courts and Comptroller is responsible for keeping all court records for Hillsborough County. The Florida Supreme Court authorizes the County Clerk to make most of its records, indexes, and dockets publicly accessible on its website. To find electronic records, use the search tool provided.
