JCSO SELF-REPORTING SYSTEM


WHY SHOULD YOU USE IT?

In recent years the Sheriff’s Office has been called on to respond to increased calls with fewer deputies. Because deputies are dispatched to more urgent calls first, citizens calling for service on something that is no longer happening and/or where there is no suspect often have to wait to speak with a deputy. The ability to go on-line or file a report on the computer kiosk in the Sheriff’s lobby is a convenience to those citizens and allows deputies to be available for calls for something that is occurring now that may pose an immediate risk to public safety.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

You log on to the Self-Reporting form on your computer at home or the computer in the Sheriff’s Lobby, select the type of report you want to file, and fill out the information in the boxes. When you have completed the form, you click the submit button. If you are entering the information on your home computer, you have the option to print a copy of what you have submitted. This is not a case report or incident report. There will be a reference number on your printout. You do not have the option to print a copy of what you have submitted if you are entering the information in the Sheriff’s lobby. If you use this option, you may want to write down your reference number. The Captain on duty the morning after you submit your information will review it, approve it, and assign a case number. When your information has been assigned a case number, our system will send you an email telling you the case number. If necessary, a deputy may contact you to request follow up information.

If you need a copy of your incident report, once you have received your case number you may call (360) 385-3831 option 0 or come in to the Sheriff’s office to make a records request for your report.

WHAT IF?


Call (360) 385-3831 and press 1 to speak to Dispatch where your request will be referred to a deputy.
