Forms and Resources
The St. Charles County Department of Emergency Communications (SCCEC) is the custodian of records for radio and dispatch information for the law enforcement, fire, and EMS agencies for which it provides dispatching services. Records maintained by SCCEC include 911 recordings and Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) reports. SCCEC does not maintain any police, fire or EMS reports.
If you wish to request any records from SCCEC, please be aware of the following requirements:
- SCCEC complies with the Missouri Sunshine Law, Chapter 610, RSMo.
- Individuals wishing to make a Sunshine request are asked to complete the Audio and/or Records Request Form and submit it via email.
- Requests anticipated to take more than one hour to complete will require advance payment of fees.
- Identifying information about juvenile suspects or juvenile victims of crimes will be redacted from any records provided in response to a Sunshine request.
- 911 calls involving a complaint or report of a crime are closed records and cannot be released via a Sunshine request. For 911 calls related to non-criminal complaints (such as medical calls), the call may be released to a person who was directly involved in an incident, or whose property was involved in an incident. If the 911 call is related to a complaint or report of a crime, or the requestor is not directly involved in an incident or the property owner of property involved in an incident, the recording will be released only pursuant to a valid subpoena or court order.
- A subpoena for records must be issued in conjunction with a proper deposition notice, must state the time and place for taking the deposition, and must designate the materials being requested. (Mo. R. Civ. Pro. 57.09(b); Mo. R. Civ. Pro. 53.03(b))
- The subpoena must be served by the sheriff or a sheriff’s deputy, or by any other person who is not a party and is not less than 18 years of age. (Mo. R. Civ. Pro. 57.09(d)) Service of a subpoena via email, U.S. mail, or fax is not accepted.
- The subpoena must be served not fewer than 10 days before the time specified for compliance. (Mo. R. Civ. Pro. 57.09(c))
- Subpoenas should be served to St. Charles County Department of Emergency Communications Custodian of Records, 1400 T.R. Hughes Blvd, Suite 300, O’Fallon, MO 63366.
- If materials subpoenaed include identifying information about juvenile suspects or juvenile victims of crimes or 911 calls for complaints or reports of a crime and the requestor is not directly involved in an incident or the property owner of property involved in the incident, the records will be released only pursuant to a court order or a protective order consented to by all parties.
