Sunriver Police Department   

Citizens Patrol



The Citizen Patrol program provides people interested in serving their community an opportunity to work with the Sunriver Police Department in a meaningful way to make Sunriver a safer place to live and recreate.  The focus of the Sunriver Police Department Citizen Patrol program is to provide a platform for the member to impact their community in a positive way.  Citizen patrol members are considered auxiliary personnel, have no police authority and are not Peace Officers.

Citizen Patrol Requirements

Citizen Patrol members are carefully screened to ensure they are a good fit for the program.  Not all persons in our community would make good Citizen Patrol Members.  At a minimum, applicants must meet the following standards:
  • Be a citizen of the United States and reside in the Sunriver area.
  • Be at least 21 years of age at the time of application.
  • Not have been convicted of any crime.
  • Be in possession of, or have the ability to secure a valid Oregon State drivers license, and maintain a reasonable driving record.
  • Pass a multi-phase selection process consisting of a written application, oral interview, criminal history check and Chief's interview.
