The Records section is the primary support unit of the Division. Records technicians provide assistance not only to Division personnel, but to the public as well. A typical day in Records finds technicians performing a variety of duties including disseminating report copies, record checks and impounds releases, answering and routing non-emergency telephone calls, greeting and assisting visitors in the Division lobby, and processing evidence. Records staff also maintain the Division's Information Line, process bi-weekly payroll reports, perform matron duties on female prisoners, and mail and compile the Division's Performance Survey.
The Records section also provides copies of police reports to the public. The first 20 pages are free; each additional page is 5 cents per page. Please contact (614) 901-6450 with any questions.
