Due to COVID-19 impacts on government services and in the best interest of the health and safety of the community, the following modifications to Voluntary ID Cards & Out-of-State Palm Beach Resident ID Cards are applicable for this 2022 Hurricane Season. We will not be creating physical ID cards for this 2022 Hurricane Season. Individuals that need to update expired Voluntary ID cards, must submit an application and required supporting documentation to our Crime Scene and Evidence Unit at the Palm Beach Police Department. Please note: We will be honoring all ID applications approved in 2021, and you do not have to reapply until 2023.
Those seeking Voluntary ID Cards & Out-of-State Palm Beach Resident ID Cards for the first time or replacements for lost cards must submit applications and required supporting documentation via email. Applications must be completed in full (to include notarization for Voluntary ID Cards), and supporting documentation must be clearly visible (to include government-issued photo ID and proof of Palm Beach residency for Out-of-State Palm Beach Resident ID Cards). Applications can be downloaded at www.palmbeachpolice.com. Completed applications and supporting documentation may be sent to the Palm Beach Police Department Crime Scene and Evidence Unit at CSEU@PalmBeachPolice.com.
No fees will be collected, and no ID cards will be issued. Eligible applicants who have submitted complete applications will have their name added to an authorization list for hurricane re-entry that will be present at hurricane checkpoints. Questions can be directed to the Palm Beach Police Crime Scene and Evidence Unit at CSEU@PalmBeachPolice.com or 561-838-5466.
