The records division is the central depository for all criminal
arrests, traffic crashes and miscellaneous reports and traffic
citation records. It also holds the booking records for all
prisoners brought to the McHenry County Corrections Facility.
Clerks in the records division process these daily reports. All
reports are classified according to crime and compiled into
statistical information, which is reported to state and federal
agencies as required by law.
In an effort to reduce the amount
of original records being stored and for better management of these
records, many are being scanned and stored electronically. All
department records and files are maintained and secured in the
records division and made available according to federal and state
