Records Division

The Records Division is responsible for processing and maintaining crime and arrest records, traffic accident reports, citations and related documents in order to provide information to other divisions within the Sheriff’s Office, the County Attorney’s Office, the Court System, other law enforcement agencies and to the general public. 

Records are classified as “Confidential”, “Private”, and “Public” and a determination is made by Records Division staff, under State Data Practices guidelines, as to when a record can be released, who it can be released to, or whether a record can be released at all.
