Sheriff's Blotter Information
*Beginning on June 12, 2017, the Sheriff’s Department will no longer publish the Blotter with additional details related to the calls for service. Viewers will still be able to view the types of calls the Sheriff’s Department responds to, as well as the date, time and approximate location of each call. In the near future, we will provide a map with each call plotted to give the viewers a better understanding of where the activities are occurring in a particular area.

The calls represent what was told to the deputy in the field by the radio dispatcher. The true nature of an incident often differs from what is initially reported. No assumption of criminal guilt or affiliation should be drawn from the content of the information provided.

The Sheriff's Blotter enables residents to know what activity is occurring in their communities. A regular review of the calls in your area and the year-to-date crime statistics, at the bottom of each page in the OCSD Patrol Areas section, will provide you a more complete view of law enforcement activity in your community.

The Sheriff's Blotter data is taken from the official calls for service records kept by the Orange County Sheriff's Department. It excludes those calls where the release of the information could cause harm to an individual or where the release of the information would jeopardize the investigation of a criminal case.

All calls listed are for service in the Sheriff's Department jurisdiction. These areas are either cities that contract with the Sheriff's Department for law enforcement services or are unincorporated areas of the county.
