The Records Unit is located in the Public Safety Station at 726 NE 7th Street.
The unit is staffed with 7 full-time Records Specialists and a Supervisor. Staffing is supplemented when needed by additional on-call staff to reduce staffing costs and assure quality customer service.
The unit’s mission is to collect, maintain, and retrieve police data in order to support other office operations, other government agencies, and the public. Our goal is to do this in a fiscally responsible and courteous manner.
Records procedures are governed by state regulations and are followed in accordance with department policy and Oregon Revised Statutes.
The primary duties of the Records Unit include processing non-emergent calls for service and records management. Other duties include calling out city services in emergent situations after business hours, processing Police Records Requests, releasing impounded vehicles, documenting lost items, and accepting found property. The clerks are also able to take counter reports if officer contact is not needed for an incident.
