How do I obtain a criminal history background check?

There are several ways to obtain a background check; you can come to the Apopka Police Department Office at 112 E. Sixth Street, Apopka, Florida 32703. The Records section hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (except for recognized national holidays). In order to obtain a  background check, you must provide the full name and date of birth of the subject. 

Please Note: The Apopka Police Department Office will only provide a local criminal history background check for Apopka City limits.
