The Records Unit of the Foothill-De Anza Police Department is the repository and official Custodian of Records for the department.

Foothill-De Anza Police Department's Records personnel manage the daily influx of police reports and paperwork generated by police officers and police dispatchers. Reports filed at the police department become part of the Records Management System (RIMS). Crime reports are filed with the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office for review. Our crime statistics are sent to the California Department of Justice, the FBI, and the District Chancellor's Office for inclusion in the state and federal crime statistics, along with the "Student's Right-to-Know" Clery information.

We generate approximately 400 police reports, 40 arrest cases, 600 moving/mechanical citations, and 18,000 parking citations a year.

We provide fingerprinting services utilizing the Live Scan inkless electronic fingerprinting system. Fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the California Department of Justice and FBI for completion of a criminal record check. We fingerprint approximately 1,200 applicants a year.
