Divisions

The Regional Air Support Unit serves the Fontana Police Department, Rialto Police Department, Colton Police Department, and the Redlands Police Department. The primary mission of the Regional Air Support Unit is to support the patrol officer on the street. The helicopter is a very effective tool to put law enforcement on scene quickly overhead of crimes in progress. In addition to assisting patrol officers, the aircraft also provides aerial photography, an aerial platform for disaster response, aerial surveillance, and occasionally assists other agencies within the County of San Bernardino. Every year the Air Support Unit responds to thousands of calls for service and has been first on the scene more than 90% of the time. The Air Support Unit's quick response times to these calls has resulted in the recovery of illegal drugs, stolen property, stolen cars, and the arrest of thousands of suspects over the years.

The Air Support Unit operates one 10-hour shift per day, five days per week. The Unit flies approximately 1,150 flight-hours per year.

A gang injunction is a restraining order against a group. It is a civil suit that seeks a court order declaring the gang’s public behavior a nuisance and asking for special rules directed toward it’s activity. Injunctions can address the neighborhood’s gang problem before it reaches the level of felony crime activity.

 

Gang injunctions have a clearly demonstrable positive affect on the neighborhood area covered. Some have had a remarkable effect. In smaller areas, gang nuisance activity can be permanently removed. In larger areas, with gangs entrenched for years, the gang’s hold on the area can be reduced and maintained with a small team of law enforcement officers.
