2/7/2018 - On Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Lake County Sheriff’s Department will be participating in the DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Program.  Citizens are urged to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  Bring your pills for disposal to main lobby of the Lake County Sheriff’s Department located at 2293 N. Main St., Crown Point, IN.  (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.)  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.


2/2/2018 - All residents should be aware, we have received several complaints from around the County of a male subject calling with a “spoofed” phone number app which tricks the caller id into displaying that the call is coming from the Lake County Sheriff’s Department at 219-755-3400. The male subject tells the would-be victim that they either have a warrant or civil papers that need to be served and then attempts to convince them to make payments over the phone or provide identifying information such as social security number.  If you are contacted by someone claiming to be from the Sheriff’s Department, contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Department to verify. The Lake County Sheriff’s Department will NEVER ask you to make a payment over the phone or provide your sensitive identifying information.
