Records DivisionThe Jenks Police Department Records Division has a significant responsibility in the organization. It is responsible for receiving, reviewing, filing and managing all the critical written documentation generated by the Department related to not only criminal activities but also most of the “routine” daily activities of the organization. Managing that documentation within the Department is vital to the successful investigation and prosecution of criminal offenses. It is just as essential that the written documentation be managed within strict legal mandates regarding the confidentiality and release of information.

The Records Division closely manages the dissemination of information from the Department to outside sources including involved individuals, attorneys, other law enforcement agencies and the news media. It is important to understand that the dissemination of information from the Department is strictly regulated by law.  Many times it is not that the Department is unwilling to release information on an incident to an individual or the news media; many times it is that the Department is legally prohibited from releasing the requested information.  If you have any questions about obtaining a copy of a report, our Records Division will be happy to discuss it with you further.

The Records Division is open to the public during the normal work week, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and closed on weekends and legal holidays.
