    Grant Applied For to Establish Off-highway Patrols | Ventura County Sheriff’s Office

    The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Lockwood Valley Sheriff’s Station, is applying for a grant from the California State Park Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division.  This 2019 State Parks grant budget is anticipated to be about $7,200,000 designated for distribution to law enforcement agencies within the state.  The Sheriff’s Office is seeking approximately $78,070 of the designated funds.

    The Lockwood Valley Sheriff’s Station jurisdictional area is approximately 610 square miles in the northern portion of Ventura County.  This includes large areas of the Los Padres National Forest and Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area.  These areas include approximately 300 miles of dedicated recreational Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) trails.  Deputies assigned to the Lockwood Valley Sheriff’s Station regularly patrol these OHV areas and are subject to call outs for OHV related collisions and search and rescue calls for service.

    The funds being sought will enable deputies to establish dedicated off-highway patrols in an effort to provide information and education, as well as law enforcement actions as needed. The grant application can be viewed and your comment(s) can be submitted at the California State Parks OHV Division website  Comments can be made from March 5, 2019 through May 6, 2019.

    This sounds like funding so police can go out into the OHV parks and write tickets to people riding off-road.
