The San Diego County Sheriff’s Senior Volunteer Patrol program is designed to draw upon the experience of our community. The men and women participating in the San Marcos Station’s program provide valuable assistance to existing staff as it strives to increase the quality of life in the community.
These dedicated volunteers – seniors 50 years and older – provide many valuable services to the community including:
Home vacation security checks
Visit the homebound (You Are Not Alone – YANA)
Enforce handicapped parking regulations
Patrol in marked SVP vehicles
Assist Crime Prevention with public presentations
Conduct residential and business security surveys
Abandoned Vehicle Abatement
Volunteers undergo a background check, receive training to perform their duties, and are asked to work a minimum of six hours per week. Volunteers are always in need. If interested, please call (760) 510-5290 or (760) 510-5291.
