Barrier Island Re-Entry Program
The Barrier Island Re-Entry Program was established to keep beach areas safe in the aftermath of a hurricane or tropical storm. We want only those people who own property on the beach to be able to access the area after such an incident. All Clearwater Beach residents and business owners, including Sand Key and Island Estates, need to register with the program to receive their assigned Emergency Access permits. Beach residents and businesses are able to register through the Clearwater Police Department at 645 Pierce St.
Please bring a government issued photo identification (for example: a driver’s license or passport) AND proof of residency (for example: a utility bill or property tax receipt).
You can also apply for these permits online. Go to https://www.pcsoweb.com/emergency-access-permit to learn how.
If you do wish to get your permit in person, here are the days and hours you can do it at our main headquarters:
Clearwater Police Department Headquarters (645 Pierce St.)
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
