Press release Grand County Sheriff’s Office
The Grand County Sheriff’s Offices sustained damage due to a fire on November 6, 2017, and the repair and reconstruction is beginning on Thursday November 30. The construction will impact the entire building and several offices will have to be relocated for 2 to 3 months during this project.
Public Information Officer, Lieutenant Dan Mayer states, “We are trying to complete this project with as minimal impact and inconvenience on the community as possible, and the Sheriff’s Office will work to maintain all of its normal services with a few exceptions and changes in office locations.” The Main Office and records will be relocated to the basement of the County Administration building on the West end of the building. They will continue to provide all normal services for civil process, records, useful public service, and all other general business. At this time, VIN verifications will be done by the County Clerk’s Office and we will not be able to do public fingerprinting. The Main Office hours will be Monday through Thursday 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. in accordance with the public access hours of the County building. The office will still accept applications for Concealed Handgun Permits, but the process will be delayed due to limitations in fingerprinting. The front entryway of the Sheriff’s Office building will remain open with limited access to the Prescription Drug Deposit and phone communication with Dispatch and the Jail.
The Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility will remain secured and access will be very limited. Personal visitation will not be available during the construction period, but video visitation is still available by accessing Inmatecanteen.com. Anyone wishing to post bond for an arrestee will need to contact the Detentions Facility to make arrangements to complete the bonding process.
Public Breath Alcohol Testing will not be available at the Sheriff’s Office and anyone needing a test should contact the Dispatch Center to make arrangements to meet a Deputy or Officer. All Administrative Offices of the Sheriff’s Offices will be moved to other locations, which will limit the availability of any public meetings in the building. All phone numbers into the Sheriff’s Office will remain operational, and there will be no changes in Dispatch services. Several construction and storage units will be placed around the building and those areas will be fenced off. This will also significantly limit the parking areas surrounding the building.
The Sheriff’s Office apologizes for any inconvenience during this construction period, however, certain logistical and safety restrictions had to be put in place to complete this project. We have only been given a “2 to 3 month” time period to complete the project, and will provide updates on when they may return to normal operations
