The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is taking preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19.

According to a press release, the measures will help to ensure law enforcement services to the residents of Jackson County continue, while protecting the community and their staff.

The following changes are effective immediately:

-If you need to file a complaint, consider calling and asking to speak with a deputy by phone.

-If you do come to the Sheriff’s Office, you can expect to be screened by staff and most likely will have to speak with a deputy by your cell phone.

-Sexual Offenders, Sexual Predators and Felony Criminal Registrations will still be postponed until April 6th, at which time the registrants need to call into the Sheriff’s Office to check in for the registration schedule.

-If you call the Sheriff’s Office regarding a non-emergency complaint that does not require a deputy to respond please consider asking for a deputy contact you by phone to file the report.

The release says, when a deputy responds to a call expect to step outside to talk with them, eliminating the need for the deputy to enter the home or business, allowing them to follow social distancing protocols of 6 feet.
