How to make public records requests to the city of Ocala, Ocala Fire Rescue, Ocala Police Department

Reports filed by the city of Ocala, the Ocala Fire Rescue, and the Ocala Police Department are public record and can be accessed through an easy-to-use online portal. 

Like many cities across America, Ocala has largely digitized and streamlined its request process. OPD, OFR, and the city government make use of JustFOIA.com, a Tallahassee-based business that offers a cloud solution to manage and track public records requests. 

The city’s extensive records include police and fire rescue incident reports, email communications between city officials and departments, and any member of the public may access upon request. 

If you would like to speak with a specific staff member in order to share information, all of the city’s agencies offers simple-to-use directories with contact form systems for specific city officials.

Visit the City of Ocala Public Records Request webpage to make a request, or visit the city of Ocala’s website to view department directories.
