Court Clerks / Evidence Tech

Clerks at the Fayetteville City Police Department wear many "hats".  They are in charge  of an array of different responsibilities including: entering citations, approving incident and accident reports for local, state and national reporting. Clerks are also in charge of processing payments for court, employment time entry, attending city meetings as a scribe, handling records including archived records, as well as handling the social media account on the police department website. Clerks also can be cross trained as evidence technicians.  They attend in person and virtual training seminars so that their training can be the most up to date and efficient as possible.  In general, a clerk helps the department run as smooth as possible.  Evidence technicians process evidence ( biological, weapons, drugs, money, lost/ stolen property etc) that law enforcement officers enter into custody. They too, attend several events and training seminars to stay sharp with their skills.  Evidence/ Property technicians are also certified through the IAPE (International Association of Property and Evidence Association).
