The Records Division of the Lyon County Sheriff's Office plays a crucial role in maintaining records generated by the Sheriff's Office. The division is responsible for various tasks such as encoding crime reports that are filed, categorizing traffic and non-custody citations, and disseminating criminal justice information to relevant authorities like the Courts, District Attorney's Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
Moreover, the Records Division is also in charge of storing and maintaining records such as criminal reports, criminal histories, jail booking information, identification files, and brothel work cards. The division is responsible for the correct dissemination of these records while ensuring their safekeeping.
The Records Division cannot release reports that are currently in the process of prosecution. To obtain a copy of reports actively in the prosecution phase you must contact the District Attorney's Office (or the Juvenile Probation Office if the case involves a juvenile).
