CLEARS Executive Board President


Welcome! It is both an honor and a privilege to serve as the 2019 CLEARS Executive Board President.  I am excited to take the helm and support the executive board that is comprised of the 7 Chapter Presidents and Appointees as we promote activates that serve CLEARS members statewide.

CLEARS, Inc.  is a training organization that was started 45 years ago with the purpose of assisting Records Professionals get the specialized education and training needed for a successful career in Law Enforcement Records.  Although it was started by and for Records Supervisors and Managers, the association has grown to include talented associate members that would like to transition into a supervision role, or just be the best professional they can be.  We have members from Police, Sheriff, State Universities, Dispatchers and various other disciplines.  It doesn’t matter how much, or how little experience you have with Records Information Management because CLEARS has something for everyone.

Arguably, the most valued benefit of CLEARS Membership is the opportunity to network with other members.  The depth of knowledge combined with the varied pool of experienced CLEARS members is undoubtedly our greatest resource.  We are stronger together.  Go to training and meet as many people as you can!  I urge you to get involved in CLEARS by participating in our many committees or consider a future opportunity as a Chapter Officer.  Reach out to fellow members for assistance.

Information Management and the demand for data increases each year.  CLEARS tracks legislation and partners with our advocates at Warner, Pank, Salzillo and Sanchez to help educate and track legislation that affects all law enforcement, specifically those that impact Law Enforcement Records.  New bills are introduced every year and staying on top of all of them and they flow through the legislative process is another way the CLEARS members stay informed. We also have excellent Corporate Sponsors.

Take advantage of Chapter Monthly Training Meetings and the Annual Training and Technology Seminar.   We are fortunate to have a variety of trainers that concentrate on supervisory and management skills as well as representatives from the California Department of Motor Vehicles and Department of Justice that will show you how to navigate through updates and answer your questions.  The 46th Annual Training and Technology Seminar will be held October 21st – 25th at the Peppermill Resort, Reno.

Act:  new or renew today!  We welcome past, present and new members.  We also treasure or retired and Lifetime members as well.

Thank you for your CLEARS Membership,


Lisa Scheff, Executive President
California Law Enforcement Association of Records Supervisors, Inc.
