Miami-Dade County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What Are Miami-Dade County Arrest Records?

Miami-Dade County arrest records are documents recorded by the Miami-Dade Police Department concerning persons taken into custody following allegations or suspicions of criminal involvement. These police reports detail the factors surrounding the apprehension, such as the crime, the arrestee, the arrest itself, and information about subsequent actions like release, bail, arraignment, or data on the court case.

Miami-Dade County arrest records may also refer to the frequency of apprehensions that is done by a police department within its jurisdiction. These records are often in the form of statistical reports and contain broken-down information about different factors surrounding the crime. For instance, these records may break down incidents into periods, gender, location, and age.

The Miami-Dade Police Departments and its various districts are responsible for gathering, creating, maintaining, and issuing these records in the county. Interested persons can get Miami-Dade arrest records in the form of offense or incident (O/I) police reports, a crime map, or contained within a background check report. To request copies, individuals should indicate the required information and provide the relevant names, locations, dates, and case numbers (if known) in the mailed letter or in-person.

Note: In some cases, some reports or portions of the record may be unavailable to the public due to their sensitive nature. Moreover, unless conviction details are contained in the Miami-Dade arrest records, these records should not be used as evidence of criminal involvement.

Crime Statistics

2017 crime statistics for Miami-Dade County show that there were a total of 6,166 violent recorded crimes during the year. There were also 34,842 non-violent crimes in that year. Compared to previous years, these figures represent a 3.35% and 2.42% decline in violent crimes over the last five- and one-year periods, respectively. Non-violent crime rates also declined with a 2.42% year-on-year drop compared to 2016 and an 11.58% drop over the past five years.

A breakdown of crime data shows that robbery (7.91%), aggravated assault (4.17%), burglary (4.55%), and larceny-theft (3.09%) rates fell compared to the previous year while there were higher incidences of homicide (8.14%), rape (23.96%), and motor vehicle theft (6.37%).

What Are Miami-Dade County Criminal Records?

Miami-Dade County criminal records refer to official documents that summarize the local criminal activities of individuals in the county. Similar to a Miami-Dade arrest record, these records also contain information on arrest warrants and history. However, these records also cover the court case and dispositions. Specifically, the details typically include:

  • Subject’s bio-data (names, aliases, sex, nationality, and date of birth)
  • Full fingerprints and mugshot
  • Physical description and identifiers (height, hair color, body markings, etc.)
  • Listing of prior or pending warrants, arrests, and indictments
  • Convictions and dispositions

The Miami-Dade Police Departments and its various districts are responsible for gathering, creating, maintaining, and issuing these records in the county, while county courts also manage case/conviction information. At the state level, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is the central repository of criminal information.
