Was your vehicle towed?
Do you need a copy of a police report?
The answers to all these questions can be obtained from the Sheriff's Office Criminal Records division, located at the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office at 5179 Crater Lake Highway, in Central Point. Criminal Records is open 7 days per week, 24 hours per day to serve you.
Criminal Records uses technology to store, track, and retrieve crime related reports from the time a crime is reported until it is fully investigated and prosecuted. In addition to reports written by Sheriff's Office deputies, administrative staff, and detectives, the Sheriff's Office also has a contract with several cities to maintain their police records.
Public Records Requests
Much of the information that the Jackson County Sheriff's Office stores is routinely available to the public for a fee:
- Non-criminal accident reports
- Some property crimes reports
- Tow reports
- Basic information on arrested adults
- Sheriff's Office policies or procedures
Of course there are exceptions under the law that restrict the release of some records in order to protect juveniles, cases under investigation, the security of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office personnel or the facility, etc. Some requests are not readily available without a manager or commander's approval. The first step in the process is to complete a Public Records Request form and to submit the estimated fee. If the information you need is not immediately available, Records Staff will let you know if or when the information is expected to be releasable.
