The Police Records Division is part of the Administrative Services Division of the Police Department and provides support service to the Department, the community, and other agencies.

The Section is responsible for the processing, distribution, and retention of all police documents, including offense/incident reports, traffic citations, warrants, and crash reports. Tens of thousands of records are processed through the Records Section each year for data entry.
