There is a charge of $24 to access the criminal records of past and present Florida inmates on the FDLE Criminal History Information website, as of 2015. The website is updated constantly. Certified criminal history results are not available on the website. To perform a search, individuals need as much information as possible about an inmate, including the complete name, Social Security number and date of birth.

Users can perform name-based searches and get results for all possible matches. They can access as many criminal records as they wish, which include comprehensive information about the nature of the conviction, date of the arrest, length of imprisonment, inmate release information and fugitive information. The website also contains all fingerprint-related arrests made in Florida, which are often required by law enforcement agencies. Users can email or print the results of their search.

Individuals who wish to receive a Florida criminal background check online can download and fill out a Florida Background Check Request form. The information is also available via regular mail for a nominal fee.
