Records Unit - General

The Records Unit of the Law Enforcement Division maintains all paperwork generated and received by division personnel. The paperwork includes investigative reports, statements, depositions, accident reports, traffic summons, arrest paperwork, court orders, domestic incident reports, patrol activity reports and foil requests. The information from all paperwork received by the Records Unit is manually keyed into an applicable database, which is then accessible to division personnel for research and statistical purposes. Complaint, accident and arrest data, from 1988 until present, is available.

After report and paperworkdata is entered in a database, the paperwork or report is copied, distributed and filed by the Records Unit staff. Copies of reports are mailed daily to the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles, Oneida County Department of Public Works, NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation, NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services, and the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office.

The Records Unit maintains copies of Law Enforcement Division equipment certifications such as RADAR and Breathalyzer calibrations and certifications. Certified copies of these records are routinely sent to the District Attorney’s Office in preparation for traffic and criminal case prosecution.

When available, Records Unit staff handles “walk-in” complaints and motor vehicle equipment checks. The unit stores, tracks, and delivers to DMV, vehicle license plates that have been taken from vehicles by Patrol Deputies or that have been turned in as found property. The Unit maintains emergency contact information for Oneida County businesses and listings for the numerous courts and justices of the county.

Most records and reports; motor vehicle accidents, complaints, and domestic incident reports, are stored and accessible for twenty years or longer. Traffic summonses are only stored for 2 years. Report information that has been entered into an electronic database is intended to be accessible indefinitely. If the Unit receives a request for a record that is not stored locally (records older than five years are stored off-site) the record can be provided, but it will take a little extra time.

Statistical information is not routinely available, unless it is information generated in the normal course of “business”:

Uniform Crime Reports (UCRs) are prepared monthly and annually. The UCRs consist ofcrime and complaint statistics that we compile as a normal course of business. Copies of UCRscan be obtained by foil request.

The count of words displayed on this page is a statistic. We do not have a need for this information so we do not generate this statistic.You cannot utilize a Foil request to obtain the count of words on this page. However, a copy of this web page is available with a Foil request because the page was prepared in the normal course of business. You are entitled to the data, but generating the statistic from the data is your chore. (Okay. Just this one time. There are 1,027 visible words on this page.)

The New York State Committee on Open Government maintains awebsite which may more fully explain the specifics of Foil.
