Mission: To conserve the peace.
The Lane County Sheriff’s Office provides correctional services including a jail that houses 256 local offenders, a 36-bed Community Corrections Center (work-release), and out-of-custody programs such as Community Service and Sheriff's Work Crew. We provide 20 hours a day patrol of urban, suburban and rural areas, including timberlands, waterways, and coastal dune areas. The Sheriff's Office conducts criminal investigations, maintains evidence and property storage, has an extensive criminal justice Records section, and operates a 24/7 Dispatch Center. Court security, offender transport, process service (criminal and civil), emergency management, and search and rescue functions round out the service the office delivers.
Lane County covers over 4,600 square miles, and is nearly the size of the state of Connecticut. Over 200 staff, along with many volunteers, support these services and utilize land, marine, air and other assets to maximize our response capability.
The Sheriff's Office, committed to justice and integrity, is sworn to protect and honored to serve the citizens of Lane County.
Thank you for your confidence in us.

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) has discontinued mailing renewal notices for concealed handgun license holders. The LCSO has incorporated an on-line appointment scheduling system and on-line fillable concealed handgun license application that should streamline the process for most concealed handgun license applications and renewals.
