Collier County Arrest Records

An arrest is the temporary detention of an individual by a law enforcement officer for an offense they are suspected to have committed. In Collier County, law enforcement officers can arrest an individual when there is reasonable cause to believe an individual has committed an offense per Florida Statutes (F.S) Chapter 901. These offenses include municipal or county ordinance violations as well as felony and misdemeanor offenses.

Following an arrest in Collier County, the arrestee is usually taken to a nearby jail to be booked. During the booking process, a booking officer will take the arrestee’s picture (mugshot), and collect their fingerprints, and personal data. Furthermore, information about the arrest, such as the arrest date and time and the arrestee’s alleged offense, would also recorded. The booking officer would also take inventory of the arrestee’s personal items found in their possession. The arresting agency, in turn, uses the information collected during the booking process and other details they generated about the arrest to create official records documenting the arrest, commonly referred to as an arrest record.

In Collier County, the law enforcement agency that conducts an arrest is primarily responsible for generating and maintaining the arrest record associated with the incident. Nonetheless, these agencies usually report arrest records they generate and their contents to other local and state government agencies for several reasons. For instance, arrest records are reported to appropriate courts and included in the Collier County Court Records associated with the specific arrest. Local law enforcement agencies also usually report arrest records to the County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. In turn, these agencies include arrest records in county-level and state-level criminal history records and other statistical records, such as UCR Arrest Data, they generate on offenders.

Are Arrest Records Public in Collier County?

Yes. Arrest records are subject to Florida’s Sunshine Law “F.S. Chapter 119” (the Florida Public Records Law). Florida’s Sunshine laws mandate that government agencies responsible for maintaining public records, including arrest records, make these records publicly accessible. Hence, anyone can request and obtain Collier County arrest records from their respective custodians.

However, certain statutory exemptions outlined in Florida’s Sunshine Laws restrict public access to arrest records. These exemptions include and are not limited to:

  • Sealed or expunged records
  • Juvenile offenders records
  • Records of active criminal investigation and intelligent information
  • Information that is restricted from being publicly disclosed due to a court rule, court order, or state or federal law.
  • Fingerprint records
  • Certain personally identifiable information about crime victims

Although an arrest record in Collier County may be exempt from public disclosure due to relevant statutory exemptions, certain eligible persons and entities may still be allowed access to these records. These include the subject of the record, criminal justice agencies, and other government entities for specific reasons such as employment and license screening purposes.

  • The arrestee’s personal information;

Get Collier County Criminal Records

A criminal record is an all-encompassing record containing a detailed summary of an individual’s public criminal history within a specific jurisdiction, such as offenses, arrests, charges, and convictions.

A Collier County criminal records check (sometimes referred to as a criminal background check) can be requested through the Collier County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO). Generally, interested persons can request county-wide criminal records checks on individuals who are 18 years or older through the CCSO. Note that the information provided in this type of criminal record check is limited to arrest records that local law enforcement agencies within Collier County have submitted to the CCSO. Meanwhile, individuals who wish to conduct a local criminal background check on a juvenile (17 years and younger) can query The Collier County Juvenile Clerk of Courts. However, due to the confidential nature of juvenile records, certain restrictions exist on who can access these records.

Record seekers may request a local criminal record check from the CCSO in two ways: online or by mail. It is worth noting that both methods of request (online and by mail) are subject to a $5.00 per background check fee. Record seekers can visit the county Sheriff's Request for Criminal Background Check page to make online requests. Note that requesters who do not already have a registered account with the CCSO must create one and log in to the agency’s Public Record Center portal to make an online request. Furthermore, requesters must also provide their search subject’s full name (first and last name) and date of birth to facilitate their online request and pay the required fee.

Record seeker who opts to make their request by mail must compose a written request containing the full name and date of birth of the subject of their check. Subsequently, they can send the written request, a $5.00 check or money order (for payment of the required fee), and a self-addressed stamped envelope by U.S. mail to the CCSO Central Records Bureau mailing address. The Bureau’s mailing address has already been provided in other sections.

Some municipal police departments also provide services that allow interested persons to request municipal-level criminal background checks. Most notably, the Naples Police Department (NPD) provides local criminal background checks at no charge. Generally, individuals interested in conducting municipal-level criminal background checks can query a municipal police department for more information on the criminal background check services they may offer.

Interested persons can also conduct state-level and federal-level (national) criminal record checks through relevant agencies. State-level criminal record checks can be conducted through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), which serves as the central repository for information on criminal history in the state of Florida. Note that the FDLE charges requesters a $24.00 fee for each State-level criminal record check they request. Meanwhile, interested persons can query the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for federal-level criminal records checks for a $18 processing fee.

Collier County Arrest Records Vs. Criminal Records

Collier County “arrest records” and “criminal records” are two separate records that differ in the types and amount of information they each contain.

An arrest record is an official document generated by a law enforcement agency that contains information about instances where an individual has been arrested. An arrest record typically only contains facts about an arrest, such as the alleged offense, the arrest date, location, arrestee's personal information, arrest charges, and booking information.

On the other hand, a criminal record is an official record of every encounter an individual has had with the criminal justice system within a given jurisdiction. This includes, but is not limited to, arrests, criminal court cases, and convictions. In other words, a criminal record is an extensive account of a person's criminal history.

How Long Do Arrests Stay on Your Record?

Indefinitely. No Florida law or statute expressly provides a statute of limitation for the retention of arrest records generated by criminal justice agencies. As a result, arrest records across Florida are generally retained according to their custodian agency's retention schedule. According to the Florida Department of State’s General Records Schedules for Criminal Justice Agencies and District Medical Examiners (Item #151), arrest records are retained until they become obsolete, supersede, or lose their administrative value. It is worth noting that it is possible to expedite the removal of an arrest from one’s record by making an expungement request.

Expunge Collier County Arrest Records

An individual can request administrative or court-ordered expungement of their arrest record depending on the specifics of their arrest.

Administrative expungement

Administrative expungement of an arrest record can be requested from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) per F.S. §943.0581 and Fla. Admin. Code, R. 11C-7.008. Under these laws, an arrest record can be eligible for administrative expungement if the arrest was made by mistake or contrary to law.

Court-ordered expungement

To get a court-ordered expungement of an arrest record, an individual must first apply and obtain a Certificate of Eligibility from the FDLE. Essentially, the Certificate serves as proof of an individual eligibility to have their record expunged under F.S. §943.0585. Interested persons can apply for a Certificate of Eligibility using the following steps:

  • Obtain a Certificate of Eligibility Application from the FDLE website or email the FDLE Expunge Section at SEinfo@fdle.state.fl.us to request a mailed or emailed copy of the application.
  • Appropriately complete relevant sections of the application form. The applicant must also sign the application and acknowledge it in the presence of a notary public or a deputy clerk of the court. Afterward, submit the application to the State Attorney or Prosecutor's Office in the county where the arrest occurred. These officials would review and complete Section B of the application.
  • Obtain a certified copy of the disposition of the case linked to the arrest from the relevant court clerk’s office. If applicable, the applicant must also obtain a certified copy of documentation showing their probation termination and a pretrial completion certificate or a letter of successful completion.
  • The applicant must get fingerprinted by an authorized law enforcement personnel or other criminal justice agency and obtain the completed fingerprint form or card. The fingerprint form or card must have the applicant's name, date of birth, signature, and agency's ORI/stamp in addition to the signature of the official who collected the fingerprints.
  • The applicant should submit the completed Certificate of Eligibility Application to the FDLE after retrieving it from the State Attorney's or Prosecutor's Office where they originally submitted it. The application must submitted alongside all required supporting documents and a $75 processing fee (via money order, cashier’s check, or personal check payable to the FDLE) to the FDLE's Expunge Section at:

Florida Department of Law Enforcement
Post Office Box 1489
Tallahassee, Florida 32302-1489
Attention: Expunge Section

The FDLE usually takes up to 12 weeks to process an application. If the FDLE determines that an applicant is eligible to have their arrest record expunged, they will issue the applicant a certificate of eligibility. After that, the applicant can petition a court with appropriate jurisdiction over the matter to request expungement of their arrest record. Ideally, the petitioned court should be located within Collier County since the petition for expungement of a county arrest record. The petition should include the petitioner’s Certificate of Eligibility, other necessary forms, and filing fees. The petitioner can query the Collier court clerk’s office for information about the court’s expungement procedure, necessary forms, and filing fees. Under Florida law, the final decision to expunge a record falls under a court's sole discretion.

It is worth noting that the FDLE offers information about other types of expungement processes on its seal and expunge process page and comprehensive instructions for applying for a Certificate of Eligibility on its Certificate-of-Eligibility-Instructions page. Interested persons can also visit the agency’s seal and expunge FAO page for answered questions about the expungements and application processes. Meanwhile, questions can be directed to the FDLE by email at SEinfo@fdle.state.fl.us or by phone at (850) 410-7870.

Collier County Arrest Warrants

An arrest warrant is a court-issued order that directs law enforcement officials to arrest and take an individual into custody.

In Collier County, arrest warrants are generally issued by a judge or magistrate upon the request of law enforcement officers or prosecutors. A judge or magistrate can issue an arrest warrant if a law enforcement officer or prosecutor can provide evidence demonstrating probable cause that the subject of the warrant (the individual to be arrested) has committed a crime. The evidence can be presented in the form of an affidavit, witness statement, and other relevant information. After reviewing the submitted evidence, if the judge or magistrate finds them convincing enough, they will issue an arrest warrant.

  • Be in writing and the name of the state of Florida
  • Contain substantial information about its subject’s offense
  • Command that its subject be arrested and brought before a judge
  • State its subject’s name or identifiable description
  • Contain the warrant’s issuance date and county
