The Florida Crime Information Center is a resource that is provided by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement with the purpose of providing, both for the citizens of Florida and for other persons with Internet access, the opportunity to help law enforcement agencies throughout Florida locate missing/stolen property, missing persons, and people that are wanted as a result of ongoing criminal investigations.
However, it should be noted that the Florida Crime Information Center deals only with records, persons, and missing items from Florida.
The home page of the Florida Crime Information Center can be located at http://pas.fdle.state.fl.us/pas/pashome.a, although we will explain each element of the website and how you can use it to help Florida law enforcement organizations.
Missing and Wanted Persons
An element of the Florida Crime Information Center website that will likely benefit many people is a database that allows anyone to search for individuals that are currently wanted as part of an investigation in Florida. Located at http://pas.fdle.state.fl.us/pas/person/displayWantedPersonsSearch.a, you are able to input as much information as you have in order to search a database of Florida wanted persons.
