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 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).
