Mesa County Sheriff's Office
Support Services Division
Law Records Management 
  • The Records Unit is the support staff for the Mesa County Sheriff's Office. They strive to fulfill the mission of the Sheriff's Office on a daily basis by partnering with citizens to enhance the quality of life in Mesa County by anticipating, identifying and resolving public safety concerns.

    All support services and work processes of our Records Department impact the day-to-day operations of the Sheriff's Office including the Detention Facility. The front counter is often a citizen's first point of contact with the Sheriff's Office whether it is on the phone or in person. The degree of knowledge, courtesy and efficiency extended to each person or situation leaves a lasting impression and may affect the outcome of a difficult situation to the point of ensuring a prompt response by a deputy or simply providing accurate information.
