Report a Non-Emergency Incident

Non-emergency incidents are situations in which a crime is not currently in progress and is not life threatening or requiring medical attention.

If you have an emergency, call 911. If you need to report a non-emergency you can visit our Merlin or Cave Junction sub-stations during their available hours.  Non-emergent crimes can also be reported on-line by using the Sheriff's Office Citizen Service Portal.  If a crime occurred, you will receive a case number for insurance and documentation purposes. If you do not have access to a computer or transportation to one of the sub-stations, you can call 541-474-5123 option #3 between the hours of 9:00 am-5:00 pm seven days a week.
