The Winter Haven Police Department utilizes a centralized records
management section whose responsibilities are to maintain hard copies of
all reports and to enter computer data into the Police Department's
records management computer system. These different forms of
documentation are used when needed by the court system or the Police
Department or when dealing with public requests.
The Police Department forwards the computer-generated data taken from
all offense reports to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for the
state’s Uniform Crime Reporting system.
