9-1-1 Call Center and Police Records

9-1-1 Call Center

The Communications Center is the direct link between citizens and the City's Emergency Response Services. The dispatchers screen and handle all calls for service and provide support for all field operations. Dispatchers must be able to field hundreds of incoming calls each day, determine the best course of action, and forward that information to the appropriate resource. Not only must dispatchers be able to handle these calls for assistance, but they must also monitor multiple radio frequencies, dispatch calls to the police units, access a variety of local, state, and federal databases, assign report numbers, and track officer's activity in the field.

We hope this site will better prepare you to answer the questions a dispatcher will need to ask in an emergency situation and make you better able to receive any additional instruction as necessary.  We understand that you, as citizens, must rely on a group of nameless, faceless voices to assist you through some of the most helpless, frustrating moments of your life and we hope this brief introduction to who we are and how we operate will make that process easier for you should the need ever arise.

*Any serious medical problem (chest pain, seizure, bleeding, etc)

The Records Bureau of the Henderson Police Department is comprised of civilian employees who provide clerical support for the Police Department by maintaining all reports of police related activity, and performing data entry into a variety of criminal justice information systems. The Police Department utilizes Records Management software that provides electronic storage of all police reports. Police officers use laptop computers in their police units to document information related to a crime, incident, traffic accident, field interview or arrest. That data is then downloaded for review by a supervisor before being electronically transferred to the Records Management System. All data is verified and when appropriate forwarded to the InvestigationDivision or Patrol Division for follow-up or other law enforcement/criminal justice agencies.

The Records Bureau is responsible for processing requests for  police reports from citizens, attorneys, insurance companies and other law enforcement/criminal justice agencies. They prepare Henderson arrest backgrounds for individuals, employers and military recruiters.   

Another aspect of the Records Bureau is the processing of all paperwork on arrested persons. This includes ensuring all documents are present that are needed by the court and the prosecutor. They are also responsible for the timely submission of that paperwork to the court and prosecutors office.

Another aspect of the Records Bureau is the Civil Processing Section, which provides fingerprint services for citizens, employees, sex offenders, convicted persons and criminal justice applicants in addition to performing an extensive verification process for all sex offenders and convicted persons living in the City of Henderson.
