A Records Specialist will review and respond to your request.
If the time necessary to gather, assemble, and copy the requested documents is greater than half-hour, it will be considered "extensive," and there will be a cost of the hourly wage of the employee doing the necessary work. It will be billed in quarter-hour increments. You will be refunded any amount paid in excess of the actual cost for production and/or if the amount of time exceeds the actual charged amount due, you will be charged accordingly.
Copies of requested documents will not be made until an advance deposit of 75 percent of the estimated cost is received by the Police Department. Payment may be provided in the form of a check or money order made payable to the Fort Pierce Police Department. If you are picking up records, payment may be provided in the form of a check, cash or money order and no postage charges would apply.
