Orlando Police Department
Attn: Records Unit
P.O. Box 913
Orlando, Fl 32802
Orlando Police Department Sworn and Civilian personnel submit police reports usually by the end of their daily shifts. Police reports need to be approved by the supervisors before they can be released to the general public. Certain Police reports are submitted to special divisions for further investigation. Additionally, some reports are exempt from public records per F.S.S 119 and some redactions will have to be made before making the report available to the public. You may request records from the OPD Records unit in the following ways:
- Postal mail to the address above
- By fax (407.246.2406)
- To request a traffic crash report, click here.
- In person in the lobby of the OPD Headquarters
When requesting a report in-person or by mail, having a case number, victim/ defendant’s name or location would help us better research the case and it will reduce your waiting time.
