Public Information

The Division of Information Management and Crime Analysis is responsible for the collection, analysis, dissemination and storage of public safety related information. The Division includes Police and Fire Dispatch operations, as well as Police records and technology management.

In April 2005, the Communications Division and Records Division were combined under a single command called the Information Management Division. By combining these two Divisions and placing other police technology related projects under the supervision of a single Lieutenant, the Department was able to improve its information management capabilities, and reduce the amount of time it took to address technology and information related issues.

As the liaison with the City of Georgetown’s Information Technology Department, the Lieutenant over the Information Management Division works with the Information Technology staff to identify police technology needs. Once a need is identified the Information Management Lieutenant and IT staff work together to find the right technology solution.

Records & Crime Analysis

The Records Division serves as the central point of contact for the Police Department, with the assistance of VIPS (Volunteers in Police Services).  Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The Records Division assists with requests for copies of Accident Reports, Open Records, Abandoned Vehicles and statistical information*.  They are also responsible for reviewing electronic reports for IBR (Incident Based Reporting) submission, scanning all incoming documents and issuing Solicitor Permits, Alarm Permits and Parking Permits.

To contact Records Division, call (512) 930-FILE (3453) during business hours.

* If you or someone you care about has recently been in an accident, please see the following notice from the State Bar Association:

AutoCite

AutoCITE is an online Automated Citation Management System for law enforcement. Each patrol officer is issued a small hand held computer similar in size to a PDA (Personal Data Device). The AutoCITE enables officers to issue computer generated citations and then upload the data directly to the Municipal Court computer system. By utilizing the automated system, the need to direct enter thousands of paper citations is no longer necessary, thus saving thousands of dollars in manpower costs.
