This is a reminder to those living in the Key Largo area: the Sheriff’s Office at the Murray Nelson Building in Key Largo is open on Wednesdays to provide services to the community.
The office is staffed by a records clerk and is open Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The office offers limited services including fingerprinting, background checks, copies of reports, hurricane re-entry decals and general information. For fingerprinting, remember the cost is $5.00 (in cash) and you must bring a picture identification, and a fingerprint card.
The office does not offer services from the evidence and property division, and does not offer any Civil Process services however. Those wishing to retrieve property must still go to the Plantation Key Substation.
If you have any questions about the services offered at the Key Largo office, please feel free to call the Roth Building at 305-853-3211.
Anyone wishing to meet with Sheriff Bob Peryam in the Key Largo office can make an appointment with his aide, Val Marinello. Val can be reached at the Sheriff’s headquarters building, 305-292-7001. Those wishing to meet at the Key Largo office with Captain Don Fanelli or Lt. Nancy Alvarez, the Upper Keys District and Station Commanders, they may also make an appointment to do so by calling 305-853-3211.
Captain Don Fanelli says he hopes people in the Key Largo area will take advantage of the office hours close to home. “We opened this office one day a week in an effort to save citizens from having to drive all the way to Plantation Key,” said Captain Fanelli. “We want to be responsive to all of our customers, and to make our services as convenient as possible.”
