What do I do if I think I have a warrant?
If you believe you are wanted by the police, report to the Deschutes County Adult Jail in person. (Directions to the Jail) Please do not call, we cannot give out that information over the phone.
During the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. report to the jail lobby. Tell them you think you have a warrant. Staff will run a records check. If there is a warrant, you will be taken into custody. If there is not a warrant, you will be free to leave.
If you are reporting after-hours, report to the jail’s Inmate Service door in the front of the jail. Staff will perform the same process and direct you what to do after the warrant has been confirmed.
How do I report for a sentence?
Report on the date and time your sentence order states. Do not be late. Go to the Inmate Services door in the front of the jail and tell them you are reporting for a sentence. Please bring a copy of the court paperwork telling you to report.
What should I bring?
When turning yourself in either for a warrant or to report for a sentence, please bring only those items with which you need to conduct the business of turning yourself in or are of a medical necessity. The items you should bring include:
- Driver’s license or other government-issued picture identification
- Cash you may use to post security (bail)
- Prescription medications in their original sealed and labeled packaging
- Reading glasses
- Copy of the sentencing order
Please do not bring jewelry, cell phones, personal data assistants, books, unnecessary clothing items, bags, pocketknives or other nonessential or high value items.
What should I wear?
Please wear casual, wrinkle-resistant clothing with all unnecessary items removed from the pockets. If lodged, your clothes are sealed in a plastic container, which will wrinkle your clothing.
Avoid wearing clothing items with drawstrings and belts, and shoes with shoelaces. Deputies will remove them from the items for safety reasons at intake.
