Citizens on Patrol

Citizen Volunteer Units are utilized throughout the county to assist the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in meeting law enforcement objectives during the normal course of operation as well as times of disasters and emergencies.

One of the tasks performed by our SAH-Mt. Baldy Citizens on Patrol group is to check on homes of people who are away – either on vacation or on a personal/business trip.

When on patrol, members will stop by the home, walk around it, and verify that all is okay. If there is a problem, the COP members will either contact whoever is identified on the form or whatever other assistance is needed.

To simplify the request process, a fill and click file has been created for residents to complete online. Please fill out the form and fax it to (909) 920-0204 or drop it off at the box located on the COP garage door behind Fire Station #12 (24th and Euclid).


Have some extra time and looking for a way to give back to your community? The Citizens on Patrol is recruiting new volunteers to serve with the San Antonio Heights Citizens on Patrol. Duties performed by COP volunteers permit sheriff deputies to concentrate on other law enforcement assignments.

Some of the duties on patrol are:

* Patrol the SAH & Mt. Baldy areas.
* Check properties of residents while gone or away on vacation.
* Provides traffic control assistance for accidents, heavy traffic and as called upon by the CHP or Sheriff’s Department.
* Attend monthly meetings held on the last Tuesday of each month.

To become a volunteer, it is very simple. It requires an application, background check, and training course conducted by the County of San Bernardino. To learn more about this wonderful opportunity to serve your neighborhood or If you have any questions and would like to speak to someone in the COP group, you may leave your name and phone number on the COP message phone (909) 920-0204 or email the Commander, and someone will get right back to you.
