Florida Criminal History Search
In order to maintain the highest level of service, and to better meet the needs of criminal history record check customers, Florida's Legislature has implemented criminal history record check fees. The fee for public requests is $24.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Division of Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), is the central repository for criminal history information for the state of Florida. In addition to maintaining criminal history information, it is our responsibility to provide public access to this information when requested.
