Records checks are sent to the Sheriff's Office for several reasons; the most frequent are for employment or housing. When we receive a request by mail we will try to reply to the request within five business days. Records checks can be completed on a “walk in” basis. In the event the person brings the request in, we will attempt to answer it immediately. Each records check can take anywhere from five minutes to twenty minutes depending on if the person has a record to be reported and how much of the record needs to be confirmed.
