The men and women of the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office are committed to providing competent, effective and responsible public safety services to the residents and visitors of the community. There are nearly 45,000 residents in Siskiyou County, and the Department provides law enforcement services to those living in the unincorporated areas of the county.
The Department also provides law enforcement services to four cities in the county on a contract basis. These include Montague, Dunsmuir, Fort Jones, and Dorris.
In addition to standard law enforcement services, the Siskiyou Sheriff’s Office oversees jail operations and takes part in search and rescue operations throughout the county. The Search and Rescue Team consists of several full-time deputies as well as volunteers from the community.
ARREST & BOOKING
People arrested in Siskiyou County will be transported to the jail in Yreka for booking. This will include fingerprinting, mug shots, a background check and a warrant search. They will also be searched for contraband, and any personal belongings will be catalogued and held until their release from jail.
After booking is complete, and if there are no other warrants, a bail amount will be set according to the Siskiyou County bail schedule. The entire booking process could take several hours to complete, depending on how busy jail staff members are at the time an arrestee is brought in.
Each year, the county judge will review the bail schedule and make any necessary changes. When setting bail, the judge will always consider public safety first and foremost. More serious and violent crimes will be given higher bail amounts.
If the defendant is a repeat offender or considered a flight risk, the judge may also decide to raise the bail. There are also incidences where the judge will decide to hold the defendant without bail, meaning the defendant will have to remain in jail until the case is resolved.
People with no criminal history, who are accused of a minor offense, and who have solid ties to the community may be set a lower bail amount. A judge may even decide to release them on their own recognizance, so long as the defendant agrees to appear for their court dates.
