The Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) of the Woonsocket Police is responsible for the forensic processing of crime scenes and evidence seized during criminal investigations.  With new technology and training the BCI Division has been able to obtain evidence that would have been highly improbable just a few years ago.  Detectives in this division are responsible for many crimes being solved. 

The Sex Offender Registry also falls under the supervision of the BCI Division.  The division registers sexual offenders and works with local, state and federal agencies in the tracking and monitoring of these offenders.   The division updates the location of Level II and Level III offenders on the Woonsocket Police website for public notification. Sex Offender Registrations are held Tuesday & Thursdays (9am-12pm & 4pm-6:30pm).

If you have any further questions, you can contact the Records Clerk at 401-767-8823.
