Additional Contact Information

The Bureau of Central Records Management is responsible for the maintenance of the active and inactive commitment records. Other responsibilities include: providing affidavits for habitualization and repeat offenders in court cases; preparing public records request from active and inactive inmate files; staffing and responding to the Central Office information/locator phone line; and converting inactive records to microfiche for permanent retention.

Accomplishments in 1997-98

  • Conducted Central Records familiarization tours for over 250 institutional and field staff.

  • Electronic Document Management System (Imaging) -This system will allow multiple clients to access the same inmate record simultaneously and eliminate approximately 157,000 hard copy paper files. Implementation is expected during November or December 1998.

  • Affidavit Support - In assisting the Career Criminal Units within the State Attorney's Office, the bureau has provided affidavits of release and incarceration time to aid in maximizing the sentences of habitual offenders. This effort has been employed as a primary tool by state attorneys under the Prisoner Releasee Reoffender Act.

  • Inactive Records Storage Backlog - Eliminated the backlog of inactive inmate files stored at an off-site location. Over 2,600,000 documents were microfilmed, and the backlog and expense associated with leasing of the site was eliminated in January 1998.
