The University of Florida Police Department Records Unit is responsible for compiling, maintaining and disseminating information from department records regarding both incident and traffic crash reports. The Records Unit is also responsible for providing crime statistics to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for the Uniformed Crime Report which in turn is used to provide an assessment for the level and types of crime which occurs on our campus.
As a state agency, the University of Florida is required to provide public records in accordance with Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes (FSS 119). In order to effectively meet that requirement, the University of Florida hosts an online Public Records Center to make it easy to request general UF records or police records. It also provides a section with answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) and a way for users to monitor the progress of their requests online. The portal for the Public Records Center can be accessed here:
While it is highly encouraged that those seeking public information use our on-line Public Records Center system, anyone wishing to make a request is not required to do so. In accordance with FSS 119, those requesting public information are expressly permitted by law to make requests in any manner they choose (verbal, written, anonymous, etc.). Citizens and media representatives can also make public records requests for incident or traffic crash reports by coming to our department during normal business hours Monday through Friday 8:00am-5:00pm or simply calling (352) 392-6651.
