Police case numbers are issued when a police report is made. You may call dispatch at 530-841-2300 and an officer will contact you, or you may make a report in person at the police department. If you did not get the information you need at the time of the report, call the Records Department at 530-841-2300.
Call and leave a message for the officer/investigator assigned to your case. It is helpful if you have your case number available. Please call our Records Department at 530-841-2300. Press the pound (#) key and listen for the officer/investigator's name.

You can check your local criminal history for your record with Yreka Police Department only. You must come in person and show identification.

To find out if you have a warrant, you can come into the police station in person and identify yourself. If you have a warrant, you may be taken into custody, or you may be cited and released. Warrant information is not given by phone. To find out if someone else has a warrant, call the court you believe has jurisdiction where the crime occurred.
The decision to charge (or not charge) a person with a crime is not something the police department controls. We document the facts of a crime and make an identification of responsible individuals. The District Attorney decides whether or not to file a complaint. If your case was not filed, contact the District Attorney's Office at 530-842-8125.
