This division is the department's centralized records repository that provides police records maintenance, control, and retrieval. The Central Records Division maintains an alphabetical master name index, an index of incidents by location and type, and a criminal history file on each person arrested. Records are stored as hard copies and through data entry into the department's computer system. Records are maintained in a manner consistent with privacy and security mandates. Required information is tallied and forwarded for state and national Uniform Crime Reports. The division conducts records checks for other agencies, maintains office supplies and blank report forms for the department, completes weekly payroll records, and maintains the budget accounts for the department.
