Records Division and Reception
The records division is staffed by a records supervisor, one assistant and a receptionist. The records department is responsible for processing and storing all records created within the WCSO. The records department is directly responsible for all public records requests. These members process hundreds of documents associated with criminal arrests, notices to appear and civil infractions. As the WCSO moves into an age of a paperless system, the records department is tasked with validating computer entries of reports associated with "calls for service." The records department is also responsible for proper maintenance of "hard copies" of reports for the WCSO archives. The majority of their work involves the proper dispersal of documents to the clerk of court, defense attorneys and to the state attorney's office for preparation of criminal prosecutions.
