Request a Record
Before requesting a record, please note that you can get an unofficial (not certified) copy of many of our records for FREE by using PRO (Polk Records Online).
The Polk County Clerk's Office uses PIER (Public Information & Electronic Records) to manage all public records requests. If you'd like to receive an official (certified) copy of a record:
