Report a Crime

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is committed to reducing crime throughout our community, and you could provide critical information to help us do just that.

We may not be aware of potential criminal activity that may be occurring in your neighborhood. Since you are most familiar with what is typical or normal activity in the area that you live, you have the opportunity to identify potential problems at the onset. Therefore, we encourage you to get involved and notify us of activity you are suspicious of.

You can report suspicious activity by filling out the form below. You can use the form to provide our deputies with information about gangs, drugs, or other illegal activities occurring in Lexington County. The information you provide will be forwarded to appropriate personnel to be followed up on. Providing us with your name is not required, however, it may help to validate your submission as well as give investigators the ability to contact you for further information if necessary.

With your help, we can make Lexington County a safer place! All information you submit, including your identity if disclosed, will be kept confidential if you desire.

You must be the victim of the crime for whom the report was written. (South Carolina Law provides that a report must be provided to the victim of a criminal offense without charge.)

You need the correct case number. Our case numbers are 8 to 10 digits long. The first two digits are the year with 6 to 8 digits after that.

Erroneous information will result in the request simply being discarded. We will not make attempts to correct the information.

We cannot provide reports involving juvenile or sexual assault victims. These must be requested in person at our office on Gibson Road in Lexington. You may also wish to contact the Victim Assistance Officer assigned to your case.

Submission of false information to obtain reports is punishable by law, and will be prosecuted.
