I need a statistical report (e.g. How many LCSO stops involved DUIIs in 2015, and where were the stops made?). How do I request the information?

The Sheriff’s Office does not currently have the budgetary resources to have a dedicated analyst on staff. Consequently, these duties are handled as needed by Records Officers and other employees, in addition to their regular workload.

For crime stats or related information, contact our Police Records Unit at 541-682-3775, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All public records requests and/or requests for computerized reports are billed at $40.00/hour with a 1 hour minimum.

How do I find information about outstanding warrants? What should I do if I know the location of someone wanted by law enforcement?

Warrant information is not considered to be public information. Therefore, phone inquiries will not be answered about wanted status. If you want to check whether you have an outstanding warrant, present yourself at our Central Reception along with identification, such as a driver’s license. If you believe someone is wanted and you know their location, contact our Dispatch Center at 541-682-4141. Although Dispatch will neither confirm nor deny wanted status, our Communications Officers will take your information and do appropriate follow-up.

I need a background check completed for work or school. What do I need to do?

Background checks are $15, and are completed for contact only with the Lane County Sheriff’s Office. No other agency’s incidents or records are included. Complete backgrounds checks, or a Criminal History Record Check, are completed by the Oregon State Police.

For information regarding obtaining this type of record, please see the  website Oregon State Police Identification Services or contact them at 503-378-3070.
