Staffed by four full-time deputies, the Criminal Records division is responsible for documenting all the reports from deputies regarding criminal offenses, accidents and arrests. The staff is responsible for attending court to document proceedings pertaining to cases that go to trial. They also handle all requests for criminal and background checks as well as requests from insurance companies regarding burglaries, automobile accidents and citations.
“We serve as a resource to the District Attorney, pulling offense reports to go with the DA’s active cases,“ explains Evelyn Sykes, a 19-year veteran of the Criminal Records office. “We also have a great deal of interaction with the general public, handling requests by phone, fax, mail and in person for copies of criminal records and reports.”
