Police Reports

Was your vehicle towed?Do you need a copy of a police report?
If so, we can help you at the Sheriff's Office Criminal Records division, located at the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office at 5179 Crater Lake Highway, Central Point. Criminal Records business hours are Monday through Friday, 6:00 am to 6:00 pm.

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
Oregon law restricts the release of certain 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 available. Please call us at (541) 774-6800 if you have any questions.
