     Obtaining copies of videos, DVDs, or CDs pursuant to discovery: If you are requesting a copy of a video, DVD, or CD involved in a case pursuant to discovery, the item is available for inspection and copying through the following procedure. If you wish to view the video/DVD/CD at our office, please contact our Video Department at (813)274-1703 or (813)274-1593 to schedule a date and time to view the evidence. All videos are not stored in our Video Department; therefore, adequate notice must be given to ensure that the video/DVD/CD is available for your viewing.
If you wish to obtain a copy of the VHS/DVD/CD, you must provide a request, along with the appropriate blank media(blank VHS tape/DVD-R/CD-R) to make the copy, to our office. Recordings made in patrol cars require a DVD-R. Recordings made at Central Breath Testing prior to December 18, 2009, require a VHS tape. Recordings made at Central Breath Testing on or after December 18, 2009, require a DVD-R. For cases, involving a DUI investigation, providing 2 blank DVD-Rs will help ensure timely processing and any blank DVD-R that is not used will be returned. The items will be copied and made available for pick-up; please allow 14 days for pick-up. Contact the receptionist at (813)274-1598 to determine whether or not your VHS/DVD/CD is ready for pick-up. Copies not picked up within 30 days will be destroyed.
If you obtain a copy of a VHS/DVD/CD and have difficulties viewing it, contact our Video Department at (813)274-1703 or (813)274-1593 immediately so that we can determine what the problem is and work to remedy the situation. The Video Department may need to check your copy to determine the problem. It is imperative that you contact the Video Department immediately with viewing problems as we are unable to assist with problems during court proceedings. If you have obtained a DVD that includes a video made with the Digital Patroller program, you must download the correct viewer from to view the video. Video playback and loading times may improve if the file is copied to the hard drive before viewing. Our office provides video files in their native format. You may need to update your media player with the appropriate codec to avoid playback issues.
