Records/Identification Section

Director Nakia Taylor

As you would imagine, a law enforcement agency the size of the Orange County Sheriff's Office generates a lot of "paperwork" in the form of written police reports and the myriad of documents generated during the investigation of a crime. The responsibility for maintaining that paperwork, properly documenting it, and storing it for quick retrieval is one of the many responsibilities of the agency's Records/Identification Section. Worth noting, paperwork has become passé at the Sheriff's Office. For several years the agency has been making a steady transition towards becoming a paperless agency. Many of the once handwritten or typed documents are now produced, disseminated, and maintained electronically.
