Filing Criminal Charges
Filing criminal charges requires proper investigation and action by a law enforcement agency. You should contact local law enforcement officials if you believe a crime has been committed. These agencies are:
Ravalli County Sheriff's Department 375-4060
Hamilton Police Department 363-2100
Darby Police Department 821-3753
Stevensville Police Department 777-3011
The County Attorney is prevented by law from giving legal advice to private citizens on civil matters. If you have questions regarding a civil matter, you should contact a private attorney. People have found the Montana Law Help website and the "Legal Resources" section of the Montana Bar Association website helpful in understanding private civil matters.
