Records Section
The Records Section of the Murfreesboro Police Department is commanded by a lieutenant and employs six civilian employees, one of which is a supervisor. The Records Section is responsible for the storage and maintenance of all records and property submitted by police officers. Records Section clerks enter all police records into a Records Management System (RMS), handle telephone inquiries regarding reports and property, mail requested reports, and research and provide data as requested.

  • On February 2, 2009, the Records Section began using the VisionAIR Software for data entry.

The software also includes a bar coding capability, which enhances our inventory tracking efficiency.
