The Records Division of the Springdale Police Department is a civilian support unit, which provides general record maintenance and data entry for the department. The Records Division employs 6 civilian clerks, which are responsible for processing accident investigation reports, data entry of traffic and criminal offenses, and the processing of requests for reports.
The Records Division handles a large number of requests for reports, the most common being accident, arrest, and case reports. Usually accident reports can be released as soon as the Records Division receives the report from the Patrol Division. The reports are generally received from the Patrol Division and are available within three to five days.
Case reports, which are still under investigation because of arrests made or arrests pending, cannot be released until the investigation is completed. Requests for these reports will be referred to the Criminal Investigation Division and or Prosecutor's Office for further information.
