Police Report Copies

The Fort Myers Police Department provides copies of closed police reports and traffic crash reports for incidents that occurred within the City of Fort Myers and that the department has investigated. The Fort Myers Police Department provides these copies at a nominal fee 15 to 20 cents per page.

Obtaining a Copy
You may obtain a case copy in 1 of 2 methods:
  • You may request 1 in person at the Records Division at the Police Department.
  • You may request by phone at 239-321-7665. The information needed will be collected over the phone. You will, however, need to appear in person to receive the report.
Reports are generally furnished to you while you wait. More complicated cases can take longer.

Policy on Obtaining Copies
Florida State Law and Fort Myers Police Department Policy regulates who may receive copies of cases. In some instances, your copy may be edited to withhold certain information pending disposition of the case or for other reasons.
