Highlands County Sheriff's Office's Public Records Unit provides local (Highlands County) background checks and copies of accident reports, offense, and CAD incident reports for incidents which occurred in an area of HCSO jurisdiction.

If a report was taken by a law enforcement official from another agency (for example, City of Sebring, City of Avon Park, City of Lake Placid or the Florida Highway Patrol), HCSO will not have the records. You must contact the agency that took the report.

IMPORTANT: Online requests must be picked up at the HCSO, 400 S Eucalyptus St.., Sebring, Florida, open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Online requests cannot be mailed, but requesting a report online will save you time.
