Sheriff's Records Division
The Records Division is a 7-day/24-hour operation that supports the Sheriff's Department county stations and cities that are contracted with the Sheriff's Department for services. One key responsibility includes, interpreting federal and state laws, as well as departmental policy as they relate to the release and retrieval of confidential criminal information. In addition, we are the central repository of county warrants, deputy reports, and arrest booking jackets.
The division maintains archived records of deputy reports and arrest booking information that can be electronically retrieved via microfilm or the records imaging system (RIS). On the average, we process 8,994 booking jackets and 13,900 deputy reports per month. Additionally, we handle a large number of requests for deputy reports from other law enforcement agencies and the public.
Part of our daily operation includes entering felony and misdemeanor warrants into the Sheriff Automated Warrant System (SAW). Approximately 1,325 felony warrants and 8,400 misdemeanor warrants are entered into the system each month. The Records Division provides a significant amount of service to other law enforcement agencies by providing warrant confirmation information.
The records staff is responsible for entering all stolen property, stolen vehicles, stolen weapons, missing persons, and locates on the aforementioned, into the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS).
We operate three LiveScan terminals Monday through Thursday, which provides fingerprinting service to the public as well as other county entities. On the average we fingerprint 246 individuals monthly utilizing LiveScan.
Additional records responsibilities include: maintaining paperwork on all Court ordered sealed records for juveniles, which includes the eradication of all citations or deputy reports related to the sealed record; processing information on sex, arson, and narcotics registrants; work closely with Department of Justice on department statistical data, including arrests, clearances, and Part I Crimes; processing requests from insurance companies, law enforcement agencies and other county and state departments; and processing the necessary paperwork for extraditions.
