Police Records

Records Supervisor:  Gail Kennerson
(409) 983-8652
Recordkeeping, especially in this informational age, has taken on extreme importance over past years. On a daily basis insurance companies, victims, attorneys, prosecutors, and a host of other agencies demand information often as soon as it is generated.

The Records Supervisor must ensure that reports submitted are clear, concise, and accurate.  Records are the lifeblood of any law enforcement agency and each year the demands upon these records increases. Without accurate and concise records policing functions would not exist. Records are crucial for the preservation of the rights of all parties involved — be it the victim, the accused, or someone with a financial interest in the outcome.  Without properly recording history, these rights will not be protected and we could easily become part of the problems we address, rather than being a part of the solutions.  Records also assist in crime prevention by identifying problem areas — they serve as the official memory of this City’s law enforcement agency.
