Good Morning!

I am continuing to work on your public records request regarding firearms.

Most of the other questions you are asking are not handled by our agency. The Department of Agriculture handles the issuance of gun permits and licenses. Is there specific information you are looking for?
I am contacting additional people in our agency to follow up to see if there is anything our agency does regarding firearms and permits and licenses.

If there is specific information you looking for, please let me know. I will be contacting you later today to follow up regarding cost to provide offense reports regarding firearm related assaults and homicides.

Good Afternoon!

There is a total of 23 reports, total of 363 pages. I am estimating a total of 6 hours to review all of the reports and make any necessary redactions plus the time it will take to convert the reports to pdf format and email to you. The total for the 6 hours x $13.00 per hour equals $78.00.

We accept money orders, business checks or cash. Money orders or business checks must be made payable to the Monroe Co Sheriffs’ Office and mailed to the Monroe Co Sheriffs’ Office, 5525 College Rd, Key West, Fl. 33040 Attn: Central Records – Heather Bennett

Regarding the policy and procedures for firearms, you will need to contact the Florida Department of Agriculture as they are the department which handles permits, licenses, etc.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
