The Rialto Police Volunteers are involved in several aspects of service to the Police Department. Among other things, they assist with traffic control at accident and crime scenes, conduct citizen and vacation patrols, host Neighborhood Watch Meetings, conduct station tours, and conduct free child fingerprinting at a variety of Department events.
Every Wednesday morning at 8:00 a.m., Police Volunteer Judy Roberts hosts "Coffee with a Cop" at the Farmer Boys Restaurant, 1310 W. Baseline Road, Rialto. This program is an avenue for citizens to meet informally with Department representatives to discuss issues of importance to them, such as: crime trends, neighborhood problems and quality of life issues. Judy then disseminates the information to the appropriate Department representative, or she forwards it to Code Enforcement.
There are currently 33 Police Volunteers, and 96 Neighborhood Watch Groups. Volunteers donate approximately 5,000 hours of service to the Department annually. We are indebted to this fine group of men and women who selflessly dedicate themselves to assisting the Rialto Police Department.
