The Records Section provides a variety of services to both the Police Department and the general public. Additionally, the Records Section provides services to outside agencies such as the State Attorney, FBI and other state and municipal police departments. These services include handling all requests for copies of reports and other police documents as well as responding to subpoenas for information. The Records Section receives, codes, enters and files over 13,298 documents each year.
The section classifies all criminal offense reports and maintains statistical compilations regarding the numbers and types of crimes reported to the Department. This information is utilized internally to provide an ongoing picture of criminal activity within the city. Additionally, this statistical information is forwarded to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) where it becomes part of the national Uniform Crime Report.
As a public service, the Records Section provides a fingerprinting service for non-criminal purposes such as immigration, employment, and handgun permit applications.
