Any inquiries to events that have just occurred and a press release has not been posted should be directed to the respective divisions (Law Enforcement 565-3941 or Detention 565-1603) on duty Watch Commander. The Watch Commander may be directly involved in managing the incident so an immediate response will not always be practical.
Generally speaking press releases posted on the Sheriff's Office website will have information at the end of the release naming the individual who should be contacted for further information. Absent information the author of the press release should be contacted.
Other questions related to incidents, operations or issues should be directed to that division's assistant sheriff. The Law Enforcement Assistant Sheriff can be reached at (707) 565-2781. The Detention Assistant Sheriff can be reached at (707) 565-1422.
