The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the Jackson County Jail. The facility was built in 1981 and can house up to 300 male and female inmates. The Jackson County Jail serves all law enforcement agencies in the area.
The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) contains detectives that work in Major Crimes, Sex Crimes, Child Exploitation, Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Team (IMET), Medical Examiners, and a number of local task forces.
Sheriff’s patrol deputies are the primary law enforcement responders to calls for service in unincorporated Jackson County. Patrol deputies provide service 24 hours, 7 days a week covering the 2,802 square miles of Jackson County. Patrol also has three tracking canines. Deputies are generally assigned to the same area “beat” which allows for more familiarity with the community and the people who live in it.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Field Services Division is comprised of sworn specialized units and volunteer forces to respond to emergency law enforcement activities, search and rescue missions, evidence searches, and requests for mutual aid. The members of these units are highly trained and possess a variety of technical skills. All units are available to respond to mutual aid requests throughout the County and the State of Oregon on a 24-hour basis.
If this is an emergency call 911. Using the online citizen police report system allows you to submit a report immediately and print a copy of the police report for free. Keep in mind that online reporting shouldn't be used for every type of case, and you will receive a faster response by calling dispatch to speak to a deputy (541-776-7206).
