Public Records Exemptions for Code Enforcement Officers

Chapter 119.071 of the Florida Statutes provides protection for current and former code enforcement officers and their families from having certain information released as part of a public records request.

Florida Statutes 119.071 states in part that "...The home addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, and photographs of current or former code enforcement officers; the names, home addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, and places of employment of the spouses and children of such personnel; and the names and locations of schools and day care facilities attended by the children of such personnel are exempt from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art. I of the State Constitution..."

For records exemption in your own City or County, contact each of your public officials offices and ask for the exemption.
