How long until a report is able to be released?

Florida State Statute 119.07 allows public records requests to be responded to in a “reasonable amount of time to retrieve the record and delete those portions of the record the custodian asserts are exempt.” This cannot be defined in days, hours or minutes, as each request is unique within itself. The Records Unit strives to fulfill all requests as quickly as possible. Coupled with application of law(s) and accountability of completeness, we strive to provide the best records possible within the law and within a reasonable time frame. Criminal reports under investigation will not be released until they are no longer open and active.
