The Records Department is staffed by two civilian Records Clerks who are responsible for the safe and efficient maintenance of day-to-day records of the department. In addition, they aid the public in obtaining needed information or explanation about various records. They also maintain the Criminal History files for the Department which allow staff to search files for possible suspects in crimes by matching their descriptions and methods of committing crimes to those descriptions and methods that have been entered in the past.
The Records Clerks answer thousands of phone calls, faxes and letters requesting copies of incident reports, accident reports and general information needs. All calls for police service made to our department this year will, in some form or another, find their way to the record room for inclusion in our information system.
