How Can Neighbors Help SBPD?
No one knows a neighborhood better than the people who live there. Being a Kiika’ neighbor means looking out for one another and keeping an eye out when something seems out of place. When police officers patrol, they may not pick up on the same issues noticed by residents, such as if there is a suspicious car lurking around. When reporting suspicious activity, Capt. Ron Maass recommends that community members provide as much detail as possible, for example the make, model and color of a suspicious car. Want to do more? To increase patrols in the city, SBPD offers a citizen patrol program where local residents can sign up to receive training from the department and volunteer their time to patrol in citizen patrol cars. Overall, local residents can best assist SBPD by continuing to be the eyes and ears in their neighborhoods and reporting both emergency and non-emergency incidents. For more information on the citizen patrol program call (909) 384-5742. To report a non-emergency incident call (909) 383-5311. In an emergency, always call 911.
