If a report was taken by a law enforcement official from another agency (for example, City of Ft. Lauderdale or the Florida Highway Patrol), BSO will not have the records. You must contact the agency that took the report.

- Request an accident or event report online. [ Why this saves you time ]
- Request a report or background check by mail.
- Obtain reports or background checks in person.
IMPORTANT: Online requests must be picked up at BSO headquarters at the Public Safety Building, open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Online requests cannot be mailed, but requesting a report online will save you time. Here's why.
