The Records Bureau of the Police Department is part of the Support Services Division. The bureau consists of six Police Clerks, two Records Assistants, and one supervisor. The Records Bureau processes all police reports for the department. Processing reports typically includes report verification, copies to internal and external sources, computer input, form generation and filing.
The bureau handles requests for copies of police reports and other official documents that are received from private citizens, insurance companies and public agencies. Records prepares copies of reports for the District Attorney in order to request criminal complaints against suspects.
Records is also responsible for other functions such as warrant verification, statistical compilation for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, administration of vehicle tows and impounds, and court document processing of subpoenas and defendant disposition forms.
