The University of Georgia Police Records Division provides service and support to the UGA community as well internally to the police department in a number of areas. The Records Division processes and maintains all documentation produced by the department, including police reports and case files, employee related personnel files, employment applications and numerous other types of documents and files. The Records Division ensures that the various types of documentation produced by the agency are properly disseminated to end users within the department, the institution and among many outside entities, such as the court system. In addition to assisting members of the community that call and visit the police department in need of documents, the Records Division also processes all requests for open records, record restrictions and background checks. Records Division personnel serve as a liaison between the police department and many other entities on campus and in the surrounding community that rely on the police department for documentation and records.
