Sheriff: No intent to use deputies on "stay at home order"

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

mcmahonThe San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is aware of the Limited Stay At Home Order dated November 19, 2020. We will continue to work closely with our county and city partners to best serve our communities as we maneuver through the pandemic together. Ultimately, our goal is to educate and gain voluntary compliance regarding Public Health orders.

Back in March, county departments collaborated and established an online reporting system for members of the public, including those choosing to remain anonymous, to report alleged violations of Public Health orders. Depending on the type and severity of the allegation(s), complaints are addressed by various county or city agencies. 

It is not our intent to utilize patrol personnel to respond to these allegations. Those calling to report alleged violations of Public Health orders will be referred to the county’s Joint Information Center (JIC) so the appropriate department(s) can be made aware and address the incidents on a case by case basis.

We trust that members of the communities we serve will act responsibly and demonstrate good judgement to do their part to slow the spread of the virus.

For more information related to San Bernardino County’s COVID-19 response and/or to report an alleged violation of the Order, visit or call the JIC at (909) 387-3911.
