The immense task of managing the large amounts of records, reports and transactions that occur daily at the sheriff’s office is handled by the agents of the Service Bureau. From the moment of entry into the office, you will be met and assisted by an agent, either at the front information desk or at the bureau window.

From typing and filing the over 15,000 reports and citations issued every year, they also maintain the inmate records, firearm licenses and State offender registry.

The agents are also able to provide assistance with acquiring accident and other police reports, applying for firearm purchase and CPL licenses. Also, assistance with filling out FOIA requests, notary service and fingerprinting for various background investigations.

The Service Bureau is responsible for the collection and distribution of all Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. All FOIA requests may be submitted in writing to the Sheriff’s Office at 1170 Michigan Road in Port Huron Township or faxed to the office at (810) 966-4302. The charge for a copy of a written report is $5.00 for the first page and $1.00 for each additional page. There is a $15.00 handling fee, plus a charge of $1.00 for each photograph. All photographs will be placed on a CDR. The FOIA process may take five business days for a response.

The Service Bureau is open Monday - Friday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
