The Records Division operates on a twenty-four hour basis providing information and services.
Personnel provide a myriad of services to department personnel, government agencies, and to the public. The staff is responsible for the storage and retrieval of all crime reports, warrants, traffic accident reports, vehicle reports, and statistical reports. Pivotal to the management of the division are the automated computer systems which include over 6 million records. In 2004, over 400,000 entries were added to various databases.
The Records Division maintains liaison with the California Department of Justice. The Department of Justice operates a statewide computer system which links our department with every criminal justice agency in the state and the nation. More than 53,000 messages were transmitted via the Department of Justice CLETS (California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System) network.
