The Bryan Police Department is dedicated to treating everyone we meet with dignity and respect, while evaluating and improving our service delivery wherever possible.

Central Records
The Records Division is the central hub for information within the Department. Six full-time administrative clerks are responsible for the process and storage of information on the Record Management System. Criminal history files, accidents, and offense reports are maintained on this system. This information is accessible through any of the computers in the Department and has developed into one of the largest databases within the county. Currently, there are several services offered by this division, such as finger printing, clearance letters, bicycle registrations, and public copies.

Records Costs

  • Fingerprinting: $10
  • Clearance Letters: $5
  • Accident Reports: $6
  • Certified Accident Reports: $8

Intake Division
The Intake Division was started as a “pilot” program in 1989. It was the first program of this sort within the state that tested a civilian’s ability to perform services normally performed by a certified peace officer. Eight Intake Specialists and one Intake Assistant staff the information desk on a 24 hour basis conducting warrant checks, monitoring law enforcement computers, and the reporting of offenses and incidents as they occur.

Property and Evidence
The Property Division is responsible for tracking every piece of evidence and found property recovered by the police department. Items range from hair samples to drugs. Each item is accounted for from the time of its recovery until its final disposition. Careful and close attention to detail is applied in this area due to the importance and preservation of evidence.
