REPORTS

HOW DO I GET A COPY OF A POLICE REPORT?
Incident Reports and Accident Reports: You must complete a Records Request Form and turn into the administration office. If the report is available to release, it is usually ready for pick-up within 5 business days. There is a $5 fee for each report copy. If you have any questions regarding a police report please contact Tiffany Knight at 417-859-2247 during the hours of 08:30 am through 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

HOW DO I ADD INFORMATION TO MY POLICE REPORT?
Information can be added to your report by either contacting the original officer who took the report or the detective assigned to the case by calling the office at 417-859-3911.

CAN I FILE A POLICE REPORT ON-LINE?
No. A deputy must make contact with a person making a report. Some reports can be made over the telephone, if convenient, such as cases of phone harassment or scams. If you need to file a police report you should call the non-emergency number at 417-859-3911.

HOW DO I OBTAIN A COPY OF A MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT REPORT?
Accidents occurring in the "rural" areas (outside of city limits) are responded to by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.  Reports must be obtained directly from them.  The highway patrol headquarters in Springfield (Troop D) is the main office for this area.  They may be reached at 417-895-6868.
Accidents occurring within a city are typically worked by that police jurisdiction.  Please contact their office directly.

 Records Request Form

 PROTECTION ORDERS

HOW CAN I GET AN ORDER OF PROTECTION AGAINST SOMEONE?
Webster County Victim Assistance works as a liaison with Webster County Civil Office to assist in compiling the necessary documentation for a petition to present for a Judge’s approval. The Name, Date of Birth, and accurate serving address are minimum requirements they must have to complete the application process. If the Judge approves the petition then an Ex-Parte, a temporary order of protection, is ordered by the court with a court appearance date for the petitioner and respondent. The order will be served by a Webster County Sheriff’s Deputy if the boundaries lie within our jurisdiction. The Webster County Victim’s Assistance Office is also available for conflict resolution. They can be reached at 417-859-7129. 

ANIMAL CONTROL

DOES WEBSTER COUNTY HAVE AN ANIMAL CONTROL ORDINANCE?
No. At this time the county does not have the funds to have an animal control division. Sheriff's Deputies handle most animal control calls. Each year deputies handle approximately 900 to 1000 animal calls a year.

DOES WEBSTER COUNTY HAVE A LEASH LAW?
No. Webster County does not have a leash law. However in the state of Missouri, persons can be charged for failing to maintain their animal if the animal causes trouble in the area.

Some municipalities do have leash laws.

MISCELLANEOUS

WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG TO GET A DEPUTY TO MY HOUSE TO TAKE MY REPORT?
We have 593 square miles to cover. We have a limited number of officers on duty at one time.  We may be completely across the county from your residence answering another call or serving papers and sometimes it takes us a little while to get there. Emergency Calls are priority. Typically if we are backlogged our central dispatch will let you know our approximate arrival time. We apologize for any delay, and you will receive the same attention and time to your case as all other citizens.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT IF A SEX OFFENDER LIVES IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD?
Sex offenders are required by law to register with the Sheriff's Office. You can search and register for updates online by checking online at http://www.webstercountymosheriff.org/ or the Missouri State Highway Patrol Website. If you have any further questions you can contact Deputy Scott Miller at 417-859-2247.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO REGISTER MY FIREARM OR GET A GUN PERMIT?
As of August 28, 2007, you are no longer required in the State of Missouri. Please contact a licensed firearms dealer for more information on ATF requirements.

Permits are still required in order to carry a firearm in a concealed manner (Concealed Carry Permit) per RsMO 571.101. These permits require special training and applications. If you qualify for such a permit, you may contact the Webster County Sheriff’s Office at 417-859-2247 for further details on pursuing such a permit.  Please see the Concealed Carry page for more information.
