Records Bureau

Crime Stats

The Records Bureau is the central repository of all-official Department generated reports and statistics. Its primary focus is to ensure the integrity of the Department's reporting system and to maintain reports in a variety of informational systems to be retrieved as needed.

Arlene Frederiksen, who is responsible for the supervision of seven full time clerks and two full time community service technicians, manages the Bureau.

The Records Bureau maintains custodial control of all official police reports, both criminal and non-criminal in nature, as well as all traffic related reports to include motor vehicle accidents and traffic citations filed with the Department 24-hours-per-day.

The Bureau provides support and numerous services to police officers, the public, and outside agencies. Included in their record keeping responsibilities are the recording and dissemination of all criminal background checks. Records personnel are assigned the daily sorting and distribution of all incoming and outgoing mail, including inter-departmental mail. Multiple requests received from insurance companies, attorneys, and the general public for copies of reports are processed on a daily basis.

The Records Bureau maintains quality control of all the written police reports received from the officers. This includes reviewing all reports for accuracy. Criminal reports are entered into a records management computer system to meet statistical reporting standards, as mandated by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.

In January 2006, the Salina Police Department began destributing Accident Reports on-line through
