The Records Division serves as a customer service point and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including legal holidays. Operations of the Ceredo Police Department Records Division are supervised by The Police Chief.

Records Division is the official repository for all police and collision reports created by the Ceredo Police Department. The division completes data entry into the department's records management system and handles both officer requests for information and public requests. In all, the Records Division processes and maintains nearly 1,200 calls each year.

While the primary goal of the Records Division is to provide support for other divisions, a considerable portion of our time is spent working directly with the public. Clerks provide citizens with several services such as providing accident and offense reports. Information is also gathered and prepared for local media representatives by Records Personnel.

The Records Division also prepares Statistical reports such as the NIBRS and Uniform Crime Reports for the State of West Virginia, FBI and interdepartmental use to determine statistical information. 


All requests for information must be in writing. Release of information is done in accordance with the West Virginia Public Information or the Freedom of Information Act.

Requests for copies of Incident or Crash Reports cannot be processed over the Internet at this time.  Crash report requests may be submitted by mail, but must include payment prior to processing. Police Incident Reports and background checks may be obtained at the Records window of the Police Department with proper identification.

Parking ticket payments and appeal notices are also handled through this department. You may pay a parking ticket through the mail or in person.
