Paducah Police Department Digitizes Old Records
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - On Monday morning, Data Records Management Services of Paducah picked up more than 40 boxes of closed felony cases from the Paducah Police Department to begin digitizing old records.

These case files date back to 1982. They will be scanned and placed on an external hard drive, then the originals will be re-boxed into smaller, more manageable storage boxes.
This will make searching these records much easier and less time-consuming. The police department received a nearly $24,000 grant from the state Office of Archives and Libraries.

Law requires that they maintain these records for 80 years after the case is closed or adjudicated.
