The records sections maintains all reports submitted by deputies of incidents handled during the course of the performance of their duties. This paperwork is disseminated to local, state and federal agencies as required by law. The records sections also does dispositions, expungements, and criminal background checks within accordance of the law. File clerks are responsible for maintaining case files on arrests or charges made by deputies. The records section also enters stolen items, as well as wanted or missing persons into of the National Crime Information Center computer (NCIC). Validation of items or persons entered into NCIC is performed once a month by sending a letter to verify the missing items or persons. Phone calls to victims or complainants are also used as a means of validation. Validation is necessary to ensure accurate and timely information in the NCIC computer.
