Criminal Justice Records Requests
Sheriff Matt Lewis and staff strive for efficiency at the Mesa County Sheriff's Office. We hope that providing these simple guidelines and form on our website, produce an easier way for you to request Criminal Justice Records & Public Records that reside within our agency.
The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office releases records in accordance with the Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act, C.R.S. 24-72-301, and the Colorado Open Records Act, C.R.S. 24-72-201 as it applies to the public records that may exist.
Keep in mind; some 'Public Records' are not the work product of this agency. If you are unclear what agency to make a request to for a 'Public Record,' we encourage you to start here and we will notify you if your request falls under Mesa County Government purview.
Requests may be submitted by mail or in person at the Records Lobby. All requests must be signed by the requestor.
All services require customers to provide photo identification and submit a signed Request Form for Criminal Justice Records.
