Public Information Requests
In the interest of promoting open government, the County of Berks Department of Emergency Services makes available several avenues for obtaining information from the Department.
Incident Time Response Logs
This link provides several documents containing every incident record since the County began using its current Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) software on July 10, 2012. Please note that data prior to July 10, 2012 does not exist in the County's possession, custody or control.
Incident History Audit Request
Through this process, it is the policy of DES to ensure that staff involved in operations where there is performance that is noteworthy or beyond the norm is made aware of their involvement, and their performance is recognized as having been important to the outcome. Likewise, when staff fails to perform to expectations, this process is one of the ways that opportunities for retraining or potentially for discipline are recognized. All persons wishing to make known a situation requiring further review by DES management shall contact the DES on-duty Watch Officer by telephone at (610) 655-4921.
County of Berks Open Records Office
