Advisory: January 14, 2020

A telephone scam has surfaced in which a caller posing as a Morris County Sheriff’s Officer has requested personal information and warned that the call recipient must turn him or herself in on a warrant. The Morris County Sheriff’s Office will never solicit personal or financial information over the phone.

Report such calls to local police or to the Morris County Sheriff’s Office at 973-285-6600 during the day, and to 973-285-2900 after hours.

This website has been designed to provide the community with a comprehensive guide to the Morris County Sheriff’s Office. Whether you seek specific information or have just stopped by to browse, we invite you to explore our site and learn more about our Agency’s numerous responsibilities and duties to keep Morris County safe.
