Finding a mugshot in Collier

Mugshots and other records of arrests are public documents in Collier County per the state law. Therefore, Collier County Sheriff's Office which generates these mugshots makes them available to the general public. To facilitate easy access, the Sheriff's Office has provided a search engine on its website to view mugshots of all arrests made in the last 10 years (from 1/1/2009 to the present).

To reach this search engine, go through the 'Arrest Log' button under the 'News' tab on the homepage. This leads the user to the search tool that queries the mugshot database by various criteria including name, booking date, booking number and date of birth. A search by booking date provides a list of all arrests (with mugshots) on that particular date while a search by name returns the mugshot and records of the specified subject. To view the complete details of an arrest, click on the mugshot in the search result. The search result also specifies if the subject of the mugshot is still in custody or not and it shows other historical arrest records of the subject. The same search engine is applicable in searching for active arrest warrants issued by the Sheriff's Office.

This Collier County mugshot database is updated daily. The Sheriff's Office provides on its website an aggregated report of all arrest records collated daily. To require further information about any mugshot on the site, contact:

Collier County Mugshots and Arrest

Collier county has over 360,000 residents and records an average of 8,000 arrests annually. The latest crime data for the county shows a violent crime rate of 249 incidents in every 100,000 residents. Similarly, the statistics show that the property crime rate for Collier County is 1,151 in 100,000 residents. These rates are lower than the state's statistics which stand at 393 for violent crime and 2,382 for property crime in the same year.

The Criminal law process in the county begins with an arrest made by a law enforcement officer. The arrestee is transported to either the Naples Jail Center or the Immokalee Jail Center. Both detention facilities are being managed by the Collier County Sheriff's Office with the Naples Jail Center processing over 80 percent of arrests in the county. These jails are located at:

Naples Jail Center
3347 Tamiami Trail E.
Naples, FL 34112-4434
(239) 252-9504

Immokalee Jail Center
302 Stockade Road
Immokalee, Florida 34142
(239) 657-2878

At the jail, the law enforcement officer creates a record for the arrest (a process known as booking) which includes taking a mugshot of the arrestee. Defendants charged with bailable offenses are allowed to bail out after booking otherwise will remain incarcerated along with those charged with a felony. Defendants in jail will make the first appearance before a judge within 24-hour an arrest. At the defendant's first appearance the judge shall inform the defendant of the charge, and determine if a probable cause exists for the pursuant of the case. The judge also decides if a bond is appropriate, and the defendant's need for a public defense counsel. Consequently, the case is formally charged to court.

Sealing and Expunging Mugshots and Arrest Records

In Collier County by Florida laws, individuals who have no convictions on their arrest records are eligible to seal or expunge such records. Sealing an arrest record makes it unavailable to the public while expungement removes the record from the law enforcement database. To enjoy this privilege the individual needs to apply to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for a certificate of eligibility. With the certificate, the individual can then petition the local court in Collier County to have an arrest record sealed/expunged.

To obtain the certification, visit the FDLE website to download the seal/expunge package. The applicant is required to return by mail the completed application and fingerprints forms included in the package to the agency at:

Attention: Expunge Section
Florida Department of Law Enforcement
Post Office Box 1489
Tallahassee, Florida 32302-1489
(850) 410-7870

This mail should be accompanied by a certified arrest record and a check or money order for the processing fee of $75. This application process takes more than six months to complete by the agency. Once the certificate is granted, the applicant may contact the Collier County Clerk of Court office on preparing the necessary documents to petition the court for record expungement. These documents include an affidavit and an order to seal/expunge. There is a $42 fee charged for the submission of the documents and the expunction process at the Clerk office.
