Prosecutors Holds Workshop to Help Broward Residents Seal Arrest Records


By Kevin Deutsch

Broward County residents with an arrest history can learn how to apply to seal and expunge their records at a workshop hosted by the Broward State Attorney’s Office, prosecutors announced Saturday.

The arrest record sealing and expungement workshop will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on March 3 at the Miramar Multi-Service Complex, 6700 Miramar Parkway, in Miramar. Doors will close promptly at 7 p.m.

If a person was charged with a crime and the case did not result in a conviction, they may be eligible to have a single arrest record expunged, according to prosecutors.

If they were charged with a crime and received an adjudication withheld, that case may be eligible to be sealed.

Only cases that occurred in Broward County are eligible for review by the Broward State Attorney’s Office.

Applicants are encouraged to fill out an online application form in advance of the workshop. Walk-ins are welcome. Participants should bring a valid identification.

For those who want to submit their application by mail instead of attending the workshop, the requirement documents are available for download here:

For help figuring out if a person is eligible or for assistance with the process, call the Broward State Attorney’s Office at 954-831-6955.
