Beginning in March of 2009, the Tulare County Sheriffs’ Department began providing 24/7 dispatching for the police department. We also initiated an automated phone answering service for quicker routing of your phone calls and direct access to certain members of the department. The records division handles all requests for copies of records; vehicle releases, registration of narcotics and sex offenders, and maintains copies of all police reports and citations. They also are responsible for case packaging for submission to the District Attorneys office for the consideration of filing criminal complaints. The police records division is open to lobby traffic during normal business hours — Monday – Friday, 8 AM – 4:30 PM — and by calling (559) 592-3103 option 2 then option 1.
