The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office is working to make it easier for area residents to get incident and arrest reports by opening satellite records offices at their annexes. 

"These new satellite offices will allow residents in the rural and suburban parts of Hamilton County greater access to information without having to come downtown to obtain records," officials said in a news release. 

With the addition of records offices at the west and east annexes—located at 6233 Dayton Blvd. and 8395 Hickory Valley Road, respectively—residents now have three locations to access documents. They can also get reports at the downtown records office, which is located at 601 Walnut St. 

Residents can also use online tools to request information.
