Records Request Form

​You may request a copy of a report or incident maintained by the Amador County ​​Sheriff’s Office. Please fill out the records request form and return it ​​​to the Sheriff’s Office. The request form is also available at the Sheriff’s Office ​​​during regular business hours, Monday – Thursday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. We will ​​respond to your request within 10 working days (Pursuant to Government Code ​​​§6253(c)).

​The Records Division stores original reports for the Amador County Sheriff’s ​​​Office, as well as reports generated by the Amador County Combined Narcotic ​​​Enforcement Team (ACCNET).

​Records personnel are mandated by law to assist the public in their search for ​​​information. The Records Division makes copies of criminal reports for the ​​​public, and victims of crimes with their names redacted (Blacked out) from the ​​​report to protect identity information as required by law.

Time/nature of response

Time/date/location of occurrence

Time/date of report

Name/age of victim (except as exempted)

​Additionally, the Public Records Act dictates that we must make available copies ​​​of criminal reports to victims of certain types of crimes, redacting any information ​​which the law declares they are not entitled to.

​Records will not release reports involving juveniles without a court order or ​​​pursuant to the standing orders of the Amador County Superior Court.

​A Daily Media Bulletin is completed each morning (Monday – Thursday), as ​​​mandated by the Public Records Act, and is available at the public counter for ​​​review.
