The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to the safety and protection of the citizens and businesses within our boundaries. We are committed to the task of keeping our courts and correctional system secure and our service is built upon integrity, respect, vision, and leadership.

It is our goal to always be open and transparent with the public. This newly created community dashboard will assist us in that continued effort. The data provided in the below charts have been obtained from a variety of internal software programs used by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office

Calls for Service Definition

Calls for service are generally represented as calls to “911” for emergency assistance and may also include calls to non-emergency numbers. Each call for service that comes in is assigned a priority based on the type of crime or service that is requested.

  • Priority 0 and priority 1 calls are the most serious offenses and require the most immediate response. Priority 0 calls include crimes such as Assault and Battery, Domestic Violence, and Injury Accidents while priority 1 calls include crimes such as robbery, hit and run accidents, bomb threats and panic alarms.
  • Calls that are prioritized 3-9 continue to decrease in their need for immediate response unless there are extenuating circumstances. Priority 3 calls for service include things such as neighbor troubles, animal complaints, civil matters, and weapons violations not covered by higher priority classifications.
  • Priority 8 calls include things such as abandoned autos and found property.

A citation can be a civil infraction or a misdemeanor depending on the seriousness of the traffic violation. All defendants who receive a citation must respond to the allegations in the citation. When an officer is unable to determine race and gender, the arrest race and gender categories are marked as UNKNOWN.
