The Records Section is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including all holidays. The staff consists of eight full-time and three part-time records technicians. Lt. Heineman is the Records Section commander, and Lisa Cote is the Lead Records Tech. Records Section personnel enter police reports, arrest histories, and abandoned vehicle information into the Department’s data base. Records technicians also verify and then transmit traffic accident reports and citation into the state system. In addition to the entry of reports, technicians also take reports involving accidents, incident reports without suspects that are mostly reported for insurance purposes, process fingerprint cards for the Woodbury County Jail and the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation and assist the media. Since the records room is staffed 365 days a year, the staff must be prepared to respond to a wide variety of citizen needs.
