Records specialists answer all sorts of questions related to police and community issues. They also manage criminal records, connect community members with the right employee to handle a specific issue, and provide around-the-clock support to our officers. Records personnel make computer entries into local, state and federal law enforcement databases. They also process all warrants, file criminal complaints with the district attorney, pre-book offenders prior to court appearance, and track narcotic and sex registrants.
MVPD dispatchers handle our emergency and non-emergency calls, as well as radio dispatch to police, fire and emergency medical services. Our dispatchers are trained to handle everything from broken windows to attempted murder, from stove fires to CPR, and from toxic leaks to delivering babies. Whenever, whatever, your emergency, our 9-1-1 team will get you the support you need.
Community Action & Information Unit
The CAI unit is responsible for crime prevention programs, including Neighborhood Watch. CAI also coordinates the volunteer program, alarms and media relations.
Crime Analysis Unit
Crime analysts consolidate data from police reports, plus state and national databases, to determine crime trends and predict future patterns. The team also performs crime research, prepares wanted lists and photo lineups.
Property & Evidence Room
Our Property & Evidence staff maintain and manage all of the evidence collected for cases, including evidence from crimes as old as 1973 (a homicide). They're responsible for maintaining the meticulous chains-of-evidence, as required by the courts, which document every individual who has had access to each piece of evidence and what has been done to the evidence, such as lab analysis. Our evidence room personnel also keep track of non-evidence property, such as found items and confiscated weapons.
