Traffic Crash Reports

If you wish to obtain a Traffic Crash Report within 60 days of the incident, Florida law requires that you complete a “Sworn Statement for Traffic Crash Report Information” form. Per Florida Statutes §316.066, any person attempting to access accident reports within 60 days after the date the report is filed must present legitimate credentials or identification that demonstrates their qualifications to access the report.  Any person, knowing that he or she is not entitled to obtain information made confidential by this section is guilty of a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided by Florida Statutes §775.082, §775.083 or §775.084.

You can request and pick-up a Traffic Crash Report at the Receptionist/Records desk at the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office located at 77151 Citizens Circle, Yulee.  You will be asked to complete and sign a “Sworn Statement for Traffic Crash Report Information” form, or you can call 904-548-4009 / 904-548-4050 or email: csnance@nassauso.com to request the sworn statement be emailed or mailed to you, and once you fully complete the form and email it back, our Records Department will email the Traffic Crash Report to you at no cost.
