The Records Section is the central repository for all reports generated by the New Port Richey Police Department. This section provides copies of reports and fingerprinting to the public. Requests can be made in person, by email, fax, or telephone.
In addition to assisting the public, Records personnel report crime data to Tallahassee through the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) for state and national crime statistical publication. This information is also available to the public.
Our 9-1-1 Communications Center handles all incoming calls for service for law enforcement and fire within the city limits. This section has established call-handling procedures for emergency and non-emergency situations. The dispatchers are certified and specially trained to obtain pertinent information and then immediately dispatch to the appropriate service needed i.e. Police, Fire or E.M.S.
If an emergency occurs within our jurisdiction, it is important to know that incoming calls from cellular phones will go to the Pasco County Dispatch Center first and are then transferred to our communications center.
