FALI Palm Beach Area Meeting
Palm Beach, Indian River, Martin, Saint Lucie, & Okeechobee Counties

A message from Area Director Dennis Root
Greetings to all of my fellow investigators, from Mountain City, Tennessee! I pray you each enjoyed your Christmas holiday and your new year is off to a great start. 2019 is our opportunity to build the career and agency of our dreams.

Since holding our December meeting, I have received a lot of questions about Florida Public Records laws. Members have what public agencies are required to do and what they aren’t permitted to do.

If you attended the December meeting, we discussed administrative operations, which included a format you can use for making a public records request. Given the level of interest in making (forming) effective public records request, I will be presenting what I learned while running for public office. I learned, often the hard way, what I could and could not request. I also discovered ways to get around the fees public agencies are authorized to charge.

Courtyard by Marriott

Meeting Topic
Public Records - Knowing What You're Entitled to, and How to Get it!

Every professional investigator, especially those working criminal defense cases, must understand how to navigate the process for obtaining public records. During this meeting, we will discuss the format for making the initial request, what is protected by law, what protections may be claimed, and how you get these records at no cost to you.
