Technical Services Division:
Information Services encompasses the Technical Services Division, Records Division and the Communications Division. This vital part of the organization utilizes the latest developments in technology to ensure the swift and accurate exchange of information.
Desert Support includes Service Desk Support for the High Desert areas.
Technology in today’s marketplace is designed to be obsolete in a short period of time. Understanding this short life cycle and developing systems and methods to outlast it, are amongst the unit’s highest priorities. Identifying truly useful, long-term technologies, as opposed to adopting the latest trend, will be important to this end.
A key goal of Technical Services is to renew the emphasis on providing technology that promotes the safety of law enforcement personnel. The increased efficiency that technology provides means that deputies are making more effective use of their time in the field.
Additional records' responsibilities include: maintaining paperwork on all court ordered sealed records for juveniles, which includes the eradication of all citations or deputy reports related to the sealed record; processing information on sex, arson, and narcotics registrants; work closely with Department of Justice on department statistical data, including arrests, clearances and part I crimes; processing requests from insurance companies, law enforcement agencies and other county and state departments; and processing the necessary paperwork for extraditions.
