Motorcycle and Bicycle Enforcement Teams: The grant funding from the State of California’s Department of Parks and Recreation has enhanced our Off Highway Enforcement (OHV) Program. The grant has provided two all terrain vehicles, an enclosed trailer to haul all of our equipment and funds for salaries and overtime. We have been extremely successful in our encounters with illegal shooters and OHV riders and drivers, issuing citations when needed and educating the public about proper areas to ride in as well as shoot in. We have been extremely successful in recovering stolen vehicles, locating lost or missing OHV riders and drivers and augmenting other search and rescue operations as well as assisting BLM (Bureau of Land Management) during major off highway events. The equipment is also used as a public relations tool at parades, safety fairs, school gatherings other OHV programs and regular law enforcement patrol operations.
Our bicycle enforcement team is used in our heavier populated residential areas and is extremely successful in their interactions with the citizens, especially the younger generation. Their activities curb criminal activities through interaction with the citizens on a one-on-one basis.
