Police Records Clerk
The Chesterfield Police Department employs seven full-time civilian employees who work on shifts as Police Records Clerks. This is a very rewarding position that includes a great deal of communication with the public both in person and over the phone, the maintenance of police records, the monitoring of building security cameras and a wide variety of computer entry. The position includes the evaluation of citizens needs, response to citizens and officers, control of confidential record and filing systems, as well as assisting in a variety of other departmental activities.
Records clerks receive calls and general inquiries from the public and route any emergency calls to the dispatch center in Clayton via computer entry. They receive and dispense information by telephone, computer, or by direct contact with the public. The position requires the exercise of initiative and discretion and is very complex in nature.
