The Records Bureau is responsible for recording and storing case files. They maintain all incident and accident reports generated by the Sheriff's Office. Records assists the public by locating incident/accident reports, researching past incidents, and directing them to other agencies as needed. Incident reports are retrieved and made available upon request to the public through the Freedom Of Information Act, by filling out the Freedom of Information Act form.
Once a report is received, the Records Bureau's function is to enter case information into the computer. This allows Sheriff's Office personnel future access to specific information in each case.
The Records Bureau accepts payment for public requests. These public requests include copies of incident and accident reports, criminal history/background checks, photos, fingerprint checking, etc.
