Eastvale – The Eastvale City Council recently approved to add additional law enforcement services, including two more deputies and an increase of daily patrol hours. During the City’s mid-year budget process, they approved these changes to help Eastvale stay one of the safest cities in the State.
“The Eastvale City Council has always made public safety a top priority through previous strategic plan discussions and continued that commitment through the 2021-2022 strategic plan update,” stated the City in a news release. “After the City of Eastvale residents supported Measure A, the City Council passed a resolution in April 2021, to enhance and elevate law enforcement services for the Eastvale community.”
The City added two additional special enforcement team (SET) deputies during the adoption of the 2021-2022 fiscal year budget last year. But since then, the City has continued their commitment by adding additional patrol hours and more deputies. The City stated in a social media post that they do not have plans to form their own Police Department at this time. “We are committed to our partnership with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department,” said the City in the post. “A special thank you to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department for their continued partnership and dedication to help keep our community safe!” said the City.
