Arrest Warrants

  • When a person needs to be arrested, a judge signs a "warrant" that directs the Sheriff or his deputies to bring the person to jail. A warrant may be issued for a variety of reasons - a person may have violated the terms of a restraining order, may have failed to appear in court, or may be charged in a criminal case, etc.
  • The Criminal Records division is charged with tracking all arrest warrants and keeping them current. At any given time, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office is tracking about 1,000 active warrants.
  • If you know the location of a person who has a warrant for their arrest, please call the Criminal Records Department at (541) 774-6800 or non-emergency dispatch at (541) 776-7206.
