How do I make a Public Records Request?

Requests for records may be made in the following ways: through the Sunshine Center on the City of Pensacola website, email, telephone, fax, letter, or in person to:

Public Records Coordinator
222 West Main Street
Pensacola, FL 32502
Telephone: 850-435-1715

Although the public records act does not require that requests be submitted in writing, doing so provides real practical benefits to the requester by ensuring they have an accurate record of what they requested.

When submitting a request, try to be as specific as possible. Rather than asking for all records over several years, consider starting with a narrow request and then make follow-up requests.

The requester does not have to identify themselves or state the reason they desire the requested records.
