The Police records section consists of three full-time record clerks and a Supervisor. This section maintains and manages the computerized database of all law enforcement records for the police department.
Their duties include the entry and retrieval of approximately 20,000 police reports each year, performing statistical analysis of this data and handling dissemination of any requests for copies of reports. Additional duties include processing court summonses, processing arrest documents, preparing the monthly Uniform Crime Reports for the state and federal agencies, processing parking and traffic citations, accident reports, and other miscellaneous records functions.
They also handle Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) inquiries, enter information into numerous computer databases, and handle other tasks such as processing citations and administering the purchasing process for all police department supplies and services.
The Records Unit is committed to customer satisfaction. If you need to speak with someone from our Records section, please call 630-766-2060 and ask for Records or contact Support Services Manager Craig Celia at 630-787-3820.
FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests are handled through the City Clerks office.
