Accessing information on arrest activity in Beaufort County now under transition

in Community by

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) is assisting the Beaufort County Detention Center (BCDC) during a period of transition while they undergo new computer system enhancements. During this process, the “Inmate Inquiry” service normally available on the Beaufort County website (www.bcgov.net) will not be operational.

An updated online search function is being created to work with the new public safety software launched earlier this week throughout the county. This function will allow the public to once again search for and review arrest and inmate information for BCDC.

Until that search feature becomes available, the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office will be posting an Arrest Summary Report of all persons arrested by all agencies throughout the county. This list will be compiled daily and published each day for all the previous day’s arrests.

The Arrest Summary Reports can be found on the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office website (www.bcso.net) by clicking on the “Beaufort County Detention Center” icon located on the Home page.

Inmate mugshots will not be published with the Arrest Summary Reports during this interim time period.

General information about BCDC and inmates may continue to be found on the county website (http://www.bcgov.net/departments/Public-Safety/detention-center/index.php).

Any additional information regarding any inmate at BCDC should be made directly to BCDC through Lt. Vortisch at 843-255- 5180.

Thank you for your patience and understanding with these endeavors to provide improved services to Beaufort County.
