The Lane County Sheriff's Office will never ask for money or compensation of any kind by telephone, text, or email.

Our community continues to be targeted by scammers identifying themselves over the phone as employees of the Lane County Sheriff’s Office. Scammers have in the past also used text and email. The scammers claim there are warrants, missed jury duty, or unsettled legal issues. The scammers then ask for payment or personal information, often to avoid arrest. In some instances, the scammers appear to call from official phone numbers or provide fraudulent callback numbers with official-sounding voicemail inboxes.

If you are contacted by someone claiming to be a Lane County Sheriff's Office employee and you think you are being scammed, please hang up and contact our dispatch center at 541-682-4150 opt. 1.
