While the Sheriff's Office uses human translation on a case-by-case basis for some of its more critical communications, most of the site is translated with machine translation because it is the most practical way to translate its web pages. As with any machine translation, the conversion is not context-sensitive and may not fully convert text into its intended meaning. Therefore, the Office of the Philadelphia Sheriff cannot guarantee the accuracy of the converted text. We recommend that if you experience difficulty, or doubt the accuracy of the translation, you contact the proper department in the Sheriff's Office for the information you seek. Please note that some applications and or services may not work as expected when translated.
