Open Record Reports Now Auto Post To Website

Daily Reports Now Automated To Website

Mesa County, Colo. -- The community spoke and the Sheriff's Office has responded. In response to requests to further refine and make consistently available public information being generated inside the Mesa County Sheriff's Office, we are happy to announce a change in our daily reports.

In the years prior to 2007, daily reports done by deputies and a list of all people booked into the Mesa County Detention Facility was posted in the public lobby. These daily reports were primarily reviewed by local media. Eventually, those reports became automated and sent by email. More recently those same daily reports were published on our agency's website every business day, with each daily report being made available.

Today, thanks to the work of the Mesa County Information Technology Department, the daily reports publish on our agency's website automatically. With the automated process in place, the reports publish on weekends, holidays and everyday without being subject to staff availability to process and manually post the reports. This efficiency benefits our citizens by providing timely information and a consistent level of service to our community while eliminating staff time associated with these tasks.

Both reports are published in accordance with Colorado Open Records Act. To view the current reports published and/or save the website for quick reference, click here (and then favorite the page).
