The Records Bureau of the Henderson Police Department is comprised of civilian employees who provide clerical support for the Police Department by maintaining all reports of police related activity, and performing data entry into a variety of criminal justice information systems. The Police Department uses Records Management software that provides electronic storage of all police reports. Police officers use laptop computers to document information related to a crime, incident, traffic accident, field interview or arrest. That data is then downloaded for review by a supervisor before being electronically transferred to the Records Management System. All data is verified and when appropriate forwarded to the Investigations Division or Patrol Division for follow-up or other law enforcement/criminal justice agencies.
The Records Bureau is responsible for processing requests for police reports from citizens, attorneys, insurance companies and other law enforcement/criminal justice agencies. They prepare Henderson arrest backgrounds for individuals, employers and military recruiters.
Another aspect of the Records Bureau is the processing of all paperwork on arrested persons. This includes ensuring all documents are present that are needed by the court and the prosecutor. They are also responsible for the timely submission of that paperwork to the court and prosecutors office.
