Good Afternoon Vanessa

Our agency is in receipt of your request and I have highlighted the information I will be able to provide you from this request. Please let me know if you are in need of just statistics or do you need physical copies of reports? Also, can you please provide me a date range for your requested data? If it is just data and statistics, I will be able to email you electronically without any fees. If you require actual report copies, there will be a cost for the amount of time spent reviewing, redacting and copying the files.

The rest of your request should be directed to the Department of Agriculture, Division of Licensing. Our agency follows the guidelines presented in F.S.S 790.0601 regarding pubic record exemption of concealed weapons and we do not record any documentation in our database reflecting persons who have acquired a concealed weapon permit.

Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.

Thank you

I apologize for the delay on this request. My computer hard drive was changed and I lost several items. I have attached a listing of homicides and assaults from 2015 & 2016. I hope this is what you needed.

Thank you
