The Hall County Sheriff’s Office’s Sheriff to Citizen portal, which shows local crime reports and the online jail database, has been down for a week following the Oct. 7 ransomware attack on the county’s network. 

The Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday, Oct. 14, it has not been given an estimated time of when that portal will come back online, and there is no way for people to view the inmate list online. 

The Sheriff to Citizen portal is used by residents looking at crimes reported in their area, people reporting crimes that don’t require an officer responding to the scene, media outlets and others. 

The Sheriff’s Office did not have any metrics on how many people use the website.
