The Kern County Sheriff’s Office will be transitioning to a new Computer Aided Dispatch and Records Management System.

For a 24 hour period on February 14 KCSO will only be responding to emergency and in-progress calls for service.

Each call received by the public will be evaluated by the Sheriff's Communications Center to determine if a deputy response is necessary.
