Records & Data Entry The division has a Records / Data Entry Section managed by Lieutenant Mark Anthony. Robin Patton is the quality control supervisor. The function of the Records Section is to maintain all current and historical police department files related to crime and traffic. These employees also handle all our walk-in customers, as well as our switchboard.
The Data Entry Section, in parallel with the Records Section, is responsible for the prompt and accurate entry of all reports generated by the department. Currently we are averaging 50,000 documents a year for processing. Their work is vital to the mission of the Police Department. Information is the key to prevention, deterrence, and investigations.
The Records Management Unit is also responsible for responding to open records requests from the public. Our Department values transparency and strives to produce all available records as soon as possible. However, the time necessary for us to produce records may vary depending on the nature of the request and current workloads. Please note that Georgia Law (O.C.G.A. 50-18-71) permits public agencies up to 90 business days to fulfill open records requests. To submit an open records request online, please complete and submit an Online Open Records Request Form.
