To protect our employees and the citizens we serve, we have implemented enhanced safety measures as a precaution due to COVID-19.
While our public access lobbies remain open, we are encouraging citizens to access our website to conduct business.
Please visit www.dcsheriff and access the “how do I..” drop down for the services that can be accomplished on-line, this includes things such as; reporting a crime as well as obtaining a copy of a report.
All CORA/CJRA records requests will still need to be completed on-line as normal. The link is as follows: https://www.dcsheriff.net/sheriffs-office/divisions/support-services/records-and-fees/copies-of-reports/
The following services have been suspended for at least the next 30 days for the purpose of protecting our employees and enforcing social distancing standards:
o New Concealed Weapons Permit Applications
o Fingerprinting services
o VIN Verifications
Our Civil Division will remain open for emergency protection orders, as long as the Courts remain open.
Video Visitation for the Jail is still operational, but we are encouraging scheduling those online for remote visits.
If or when you call 9-1-1 or our non-emergency number, please know that they may ask a few more triage type questions to determine appropriate protocol for those responding to the call.
Please know that while we have implemented a few other operational changes to protect our employees and create more social distancing, all other public safety services are available.
We will continue to monitor this rapidly changing event and will make public safety changes where we deem necessary. Further updates will be announced as this event progresses.
Sheriff Tony G. Spurlock
