The Records Unit manages and maintains the records of the Police Department. Personnel in this division will record information from Incident Based Reporting (IBR) reports, summonses, and accident reports, in addition to conducting criminal history checks and providing updated information, as necessary, to keep records current. The division also collects Uniform Crime Report (UCR) and IBR data and disseminates it to the appropriate State Police offices.
Requests from insurance companies and attorneys for records are among the duties and responsibilities of this division. In addition, this division assigns personnel to the Information Desk at the Police Headquarters Building to provide 24/7 service and walk-in service to the general public for information requests and report-taking (in person and over the telephone). Information Desk personnel also conduct wanted checks for officers.
