Records Unit

PD LobbyDuties

The Records Unit duties include:

  • Answering non-emergency calls
  • Keeping crime and arrest statistics
  • Processing reports
  • Processing subpoenas for department employees
  • Typing reports dictated by patrol officers

The Santa Paula Police Department’s Records Unit processes over 40,000 records each year. "Records" can be reports, citations, field interview cards, or any of a variety of documents written by department employees each year.


Records staff includes one Records Supervisor and 3 Records Clerks. Because of our workload we welcome and need volunteers, in addition to regularly having high school and college interns.

Hours of Operation

The Unit is open to assist the public Monday through Friday, 10 am to 6 pm with alternating Fridays closed (with City Hall).


If you have questions about police records or how to get a copy of a police report, please call 805-525-4474, ext. 136 and ask for Records.
