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.


The Rialto Police Department Citizen Volunteer program offers adult men and women over the age of 21 experience to help strengthen their relationship with their community, the police department, and the city.

Citizen Volunteers assist the police department in various non-sworn activities such as community events and festivals, neighborhood watch development, station tours, child fingerprinting, identification card creation, child watch, and assist patrol personnel with business checks and vacation patrols, traffic control, crime scene watch, and DUI checkpoints. Citizen Volunteers wear uniforms, drive vehicles, and are trained in various skills allowing them to work side by side with officers.

Citizen Volunteers donate approximately 3,500 hours of service annually. We are indebted to this fine group of men and women who dedicate themselves to assisting the Rialto Police Department.

If you want to donate four or more hours a month to volunteer service, think about becoming a Rialto Police Department Citizen Volunteer; please email us at

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 referred to the program through the courts, probation, schools, parents, or other references.

The program aims to identify family problems that have surfaced through juvenile delinquency. Juveniles in high school and 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 significant 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 aims to redirect “at-risk” juveniles to partner with the positive influences of law enforcement officers and 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. Experienced Rialto police officers coordinate the program with a cadre of volunteers who donate their time and expertise to assist with the program’s ongoing success. PRIDE’s success or failure depends directly on the commitment and dedication of each participant and the participant’s family.

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

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.

The Rialto Police Department sponsors several events throughout the year.


“Coffee With A Cop” offers residents an opportunity to personally meet their police officers and other representatives in a casual setting. At “Coffee With A Cop,” community members learn about the police department, special projects, and other related events. This event is held quarterly in various businesses within our community.


Each year, Rialto Police Department partners with local businesses and community organizations to host a special event that brings gifts to families in need during the holiday season.


National Night Out is a nationwide event hosted every first Tuesday in August. This event promotes police-community partnerships, neighborhood unity, and building a safer, more caring community. Thousands of people across the nation participate in this once-a-year event. Those involved included community members, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, and neighborhood organizations.


Throughout November, members of the Rialto Police Department grow out their mustaches and beards for the “Grow and Give” campaign. Grow and Give brings awareness to men’s mental health, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer.

Officers donate funds associated with the cost of grooming towards the campaign. The proceeds raised are donated to a foundation that supports prostate cancer research.


The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between several public safety agencies. These agencies have partnered to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness and raising funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
Officers wear pink patches on their uniforms in October each year during “Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the ongoing fight against this disease.

During October, the Rialto Police Department also sells Pink Patch merchandise. All the proceeds raised are donated to directly fund the research, treatment, and education needed to help find a cure for breast cancer.

Every year, Rialto Police Department employees participate in the torch run, to raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics.
