The mission of the Criminal Records Section is to provide world-class support to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, other governmental agencies, and the public at large through a professionally-managed records repository that complies with all agency, county, state, and federal directives.
Records Clerks work to provide accurate and timely entry of data into agency, state, and federal databases. It is the department’s top priority to be courteous, professional, and accurate in response to citizens, whether in person or over the phone.
The division strives for prompt submission of all time-sensitive information, to include that for warrants, missing persons, property, and vehicles, into the Oregon Law Enforcement Data System (LEDS) and the databases of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). They meet all LEDS and NCIC records management requirements and attain “in compliance” ratings during LEDS and NCIC triennial audits. Clerks also fulfill requests from internal and external customers processed on demand when possible and as expeditiously as possible when research and/or redaction is required.
