Should the letters "S" and "O" in, sheriff's office, be captialized in the following sentence?  John Smith called the sheriff's office to report his vehicle stolen.

No, sheriff's office is not a proper noun in your sentence. It would be capitalized only if it is a proper name, such as: "The San Joaquin County Sheriff's office is located in Stockton, California."
