The Records Division maintains all criminal records for the Sheriff’s Office and is responsible for the entry and updates of all incident reports, traffic summons, warrants, arrests, eviction notices, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) forms, applicant fingerprints, and accident reports.
The Records Office must work in conjunction with Sheriff’s Office Sworn personnel and Administrative staff, all Courts, Citizens and Attorneys.
They process all civil papers from the point of issue to the point of updating the data, recording how served including date and time served, and serving deputy information.
All police reports must be verified, checked for accuracy and completion, validated and entered into IBR (Incident Based Reporting). Each month all IBR reports are electronically sent to the Virginia State Police Data System.
The Records Office also provides a variety of reports detailing statistics from how many protective orders were issued in a time frame to how many prisoner transports we had.
