Other Programs


The Rialto Police Department proudly organizes and participates in programs and events which enhance the community and affirms their confidence that the department does more than just enforce laws.

CERT
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
CITIZEN'S ACADEMY
The Citizen’s Academy is designed to present residents with an understanding of the Police Department’s operations, which will provide greater awareness and understanding of law enforcement’s role in our community. Each week, an inside look at police functions will be taught by police executives and veteran officers.
NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH
Neighborhood Watch counts on citizens to organize themselves and work with law enforcement to keep a trained eye and ear on their communities while demonstrating their presence at all times of day and night.
PRIDE PLATOON
The PRIDE program is specifically designed to deal with “at-risk” youth. It utilizes proactive and innovative techniques for positive redirection. Overseen by Rialto Police personnel, the 14-week program offers treatment, prevention, and disciplinary components to alter negative behavior. The PRIDE program concentrates on high school aged juveniles who are referred to the program through the courts, probation, schools, parents, or other references.

The objective of the program is to identify problems within a family that have surfaced through juvenile delinquency. Juveniles in high school and in junior high school with antisocial behavior such as truancy, incorrigibility, minor law violations, etc., may be considered for the program.

Through the leadership role of the program, and although not inclusive, the PRIDE program hopes to instill such qualities as Pride, Respect, Integrity, Discipline, and Enthusiasm.

Law enforcement plays a major role in the intervention and overall development of the participants as they are often the first to make contact with “at-risk” youth.

The PRIDE program is designed to redirect “at-risk” juveniles to partner with the positive influences of law enforcement officers as well as other professionals, rather than the negative influence of gang cultures and criminal elements.

The PRIDE program is a collaborative effort between law enforcement and community-based organizations, with law enforcement being the facilitator. The program is coordinated by experienced Rialto police officers with a cadre of volunteers who donate their time and expertise to assist with the ongoing success of the program. PRIDE success or failure depends directly on the level of commitment and application of each participant and the participant’s family.

The program is open to youth between the ages of 14 and 17, and they must be a Rialto resident. Additional documents required for the application process are a copy of utility bill (for proof of residence) and a parent/guardian income verification (source of income documents).

RED RIBBON WEEK
The “Red Ribbon Week” is now the oldest and largest drug prevention and awareness program in the nation reaching millions of young people during the week of October 23 through 31st. It is an ideal way for Schools, Citizens, Police and other City Officials to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Week is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA. Each year the Rialto Police Department in collaboration with the Rialto Unified School District commemorate this cause by joining in a special celebration in front of the Rialto Police Department.
