The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office now utilizes CodeRED as its Emergency Notification System (ENS). With this service, YCSO can send messages to residents and businesses within minutes with specific information when an emergency or time-sensitive issue arises.

Although ENS does contain published landline phone number information by default, the Sheriff’s Office may only get landline phone data updates twice a year. This is why it is vital that you register all your phone numbers directly to assure contact in an emergency.

Please go to the Sheriff’s Office website: and click on the Emergency Notification System tab or the Code Red link on the home page.
