Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office's new website

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office has revamped its website that now allows residents to do so much more. 

The new website has the same web address – – but it now contains 120 pages with more than 650 photos and dozens of informative videos.

“It gives people an easy way to access information and services that the Sheriff’s Office provides where in the past they would have had to call to the Sheriff’s Office or come to a station,” said Kelly Hoover with the Sheriff’s Office .

She says there are so many things you can now do on the website.

“You can pay a ticket online. You can file a report online. You can request a copy of a report. You can see who’s in custody,” Hoover said.

You can also sign up for emergency notifications via text and email, make anonymous tips and even thank a cop. There’s also an option for a Spanish translation.
