STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-November 14, 2022-This past week Colorado and the City of Steamboat Springs honored the incredible efforts that our team of record technicians undertake daily to serve the citizens of our community as part of Law Enforcement Records Personnel Week.
“The records team provides vital services for the Steamboat Springs Police Department that fulfills our mission in serving the community,” said Support Services Manager Christina Stewart. “This annual proclamation week shines a special light on their dedication; however, their efforts remain at the highest levels every day of the year. I am grateful for the support our records team provides to the public, sworn officers, and partner agencies.”
Colorado Governor Jared Polis recently approved the 2022 proclamation again recognizing the week, November 7 through 11, as Law Enforcement Records Personnel Week across Colorado for the invaluable efforts these professionals bring to law enforcement agencies.
Often a behind-the-scenes occupation, the records professionals for the SSPD and Routt County Sheriff’s Office perform a variety of comprehensive tasks that provide customer service to the community while supporting the core mission of the agencies. This friendly and skilled group works together to ensure the accuracy of complex record gathering, reporting, and dissemination of materials.
Working within state and national crime computer systems, record technicians maintain the integrity of reporting systems that are critical to providing information for investigators, administrators, officers, and the public. Records personnel are crucial to assisting law enforcement agencies with criminal information and reporting to help keep the community safe.
Typically, the SSPD Records Department produces more than 700 transfers of case information and digital evidence to the District Attorney’s Office and Municipal Court. Over the past three years, the department has fulfilled on average 500 report copy requests, 194 records checks and more than 30 statistical requests annually.
