In an effort to increase our ability to respond to such requests in a timely and comprehensive manner, the Agency has chosen to coordinate all Public Records and Confidential Youth Records Requests made to the Agency through its Public Records Unit within the Office of General Counsel.
All records, except those regarding juveniles, in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice or its agents, employees, or contractors are public records, unless otherwise exempt, pursuant to Chapter 119, Florida Statutes.
You can make a public records request by contacting this office by phone, fax, email, or regular mail. Please make sure your contact information is on the request so that we can contact you should we have any questions. You are not required to provide your name when making public records requests. Public records requests can be anonymous. When a public records or confidential youth records request is made, please include as much information as possible relating to your request so that we can respond promptly and accurately.
For confidential youth records, you must provide a notarized release for records (below), a court order, or Subpoena. Regarding the release form, if the youth is a minor, 17 years of age or younger, the legal guardian must complete the form. If the youth is 18 years of age or older, the youth must complete the form.

When documents can be sent by email, the Agency will do so in the interest of efficiency and to minimize costs. In these cases, the Agency will only charge a service charge for extensive time. However, when a large volume of documents is requested and must therefore be placed on a CD or DVD, the costs of those materials will be recovered.
If the record is in electronic form, then the Agency will copy the record onto CD or DVD, as needed. The Agency will charge for the actual costs of the disk, not for the time to copy the documents onto the media.
Request for Department Records Policy (FDJJ - 1910) - This policy sets forth the Department's process for the production of these records.
