Sheriff’s Auxiliary Volunteer Patrol (SAVP)

Sheriff's Auxiliary Volunteer Patrol (SAVP)

The Sheriff’s Auxiliary Volunteer Patrol (SAVP) program was established to assist the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office in meeting it’s law enforcement mission. Citizen volunteers trained in a variety of law enforcement topics, such as observation skills, radio procedures and first-aid, provide supplemental patrol in our neighborhoods and business districts. These volunteers act as additional  “eyes and ears” in an effort to identify crime in our community and increase public safety.

Aside from patrolling the streets, auxiliary patrol members attend neighborhood watch meetings, perform vacation house checks and assist in educating the public about Sheriff’s Office programs and resources. The Sheriff’s Auxiliary Volunteer Patrol program is a partnership between law enforcement and the public and serves to increase the impact that the Sheriff’s Office has in preserving our high quality of life in San Luis Obispo County.
