"The Snowline Joint Unified School District Police Department is committed to providing a safe, secure learning and working environment for all Snowline Joint Unified School District students and employees.  This is accomplished through a cooperative effort involving school district employees, parents, law enforcement agencies and the community."


Chief Photo Welcome everyone to the Snowline Joint Unified School District Police Department (SJUSDPD) webpage. Our agency is proud to share with faculty, staff, students, the community, and surrounding agencies our existing status as a State accredited police agency since June 1998, through the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).

As a fully certified law enforcement agency, we serve to protect all campuses of the Snowline Joint Unified School District. Our department consists of four Police Officers, three Reserve Police Officers, Security Officer Lead, three Security Officers and a Police Technician. Our SJUSDPD team is trained in Critical Incidents, Criminal and Administrative Investigations, Firearms, First Aid & CPR, and Crisis Intervention. We perform Uniform Patrol, Records Management, Traffic and Parking Enforcement, and Special Events. The SJUSDPD shares jurisdiction with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol and other emergency services agencies.

On behalf of the Snowline Joint Unified School District Police Department we thank everyone for visiting our page and hope you have found our resources helpful. As always, we thank you for your continued partnership as we strive to create the safest possible environment for all who come to our campuses to learn, work and visit.
