Elko County Sheriff's Office © 2013 All Rights Reserved

The Sheriff’s Office is the largest Law Enforcement agency in Elko County providing law enforcement for investigating crime occurring in the County of Elko, the City of Wells and the unincorporated communities of Spring Creek, Jackpot, Montello, Jarbidge, Midas and Ruby Valley.

Your options for reporting a crime are:

Dial 9-1-1 in the case of an emergency or
Dial 775.777.7300 for non-emergency Dispatch


In most cases it is best to call us from your residence, business, or where the crime occurred. The Elko County Sheriff's Office deploys many resources to the field in an effort to better serve the communities we patrol. As a result, we do not typically staff our sub-stations with deputies to take reports. For this reason we encourage people wishing to report a crime, a concern, suspicious activity, etc. to please contact the Sheriff's Communications Center at the telephone number listed above. If you need to speak with a specific deputy or would like to file a report at a station, please contact 0ur Administrative Office at 775 W. Silver St. Elko, NV or by phone at 775.738. 3421.

If you wish to fill out a witness statement before you arrive at the Sheriff's Office please see the attached PDF.
