Police Records Division

What is maintained in our records system

Police staff photoAll incidents where reports are taken become part of our records system. This includes all crimes and accidents. Included in a report may be the names of a victim, suspect, arrested party, mentioned person or witness; property used,  taken or damaged; values of damage or property; and a narrative describing the events that took place.

The life of a criminal record is forever! After a person becomes a legal adult (at age 18), his or her juvenile record is sealed and not available to the public. All other records remain in our system permanently. We have incidents on file that go back to 1938.


We provide fingerprinting services from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The cost is $10 for up to two cards and $5 for each additional card.
