Open Records Request

Records staff are responsible for records management for the Sheriff’s Office. This includes criminal investigations, non-criminal activity and registered sex offender files. Records staff maintain Master Certification through the Colorado Certified Records Network.

Reports, Audio and Video Media, Inmate Information and other records held by the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office may be obtained from Administration for a nominal fee. Sheriff’s Office records are released in accordance with current Colorado Revised Statutes. Not all information is releasable on all reports. Therefore, the copy of the report you receive may have areas which have been redacted (blacked out).
