Dear Sir or Madam:

In response to your public records request, all statistics through the state of Florida may be obtained by going to the FDLE website. See http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/cms/FSAC/UCR/2016/2016SA_CIF.aspx which will provide you an overall picture throughout the state of Florida. Further, the FDLE website also has the date broken down by county.

If you are asking for a particular report or reports, please advise which report or reports you request copies of and I will be happy to provide them.

As far as the information regarding the licensing of firearms, the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office possesses no policies responsive to your requests. You may wish to contact the Florida Department and Consumer Affairs Division of Licensing.

Sincerely,

//s//

Hi,

Do you have a report similar to the Crime In Florida report you sent over that is specific to St Lucia county? I am looking for data/statistics on gun-related incidents in your county.

Thanks,
Vanessa

I noticed that on the FDLE website it doesn't break it down into incidents involving firearms.

From: PublicRecordsRequest

See the attached report. I believe you will see that firearms incidents are included.
