The Sheriff’s Office is the first stop for any person who is interested in obtaining a police record or arrest report. Inyo County arrest records are available for the Office of Sheriff Records division. The Office of the Sheriff was formulated in 1866 as the Office of Sheriff and Tax Collector. Today, the office services about 18,000 residents not to mention non-residents.
To request for a record from the Sheriff’s Office, an individual may visit the Records Supervisor Office during office hours from Tuesdays through Fridays. The Sheriff report is available for release to any authorized individual though some reports such as sex related or records with juveniles as offenders are restricted and only released to law enforcement agencies. Individuals who are allowed to request for copies include those who are involved in the case themselves, attorneys or any representative of the victim. Cost for the report is $10.00 per copy.
