Have Fun and Be Safe - A Harbor Public Safety Program
Produced in 2006 by KOCT - North County’s Channel, “Have Fun and Be Safe” features the Oceanside Harbor Police and Lifeguard division. During this program they explain how both divisions work together and safety guidelines for having fun and being safe in the water.
The Oceanside Police Department held its first academy for the Senior Volunteer Patrol Program (SVPP) in 1995. The program has grown steadily and has a team of over 100 multitalented members. Volunteers are required to be 50 years or older and be residents of Oceanside. The SVPP is designed for senior citizens who wish to serve their community while working in partnership with police to promote public safety and service programs.
SVPP members provide many services to the community, such as ticketing illegally parked vehicles, assisting with traffic control, performing vacation home checks and conducting "You Are Not Alone" (YANA) visits to the homebound. In an effort to increase traffic safety, SVPP members also assist the Traffic Services Unit with DUI and Traffic Safety Checkpoints.
SVPP members have the option of performing administrative duties or patrol duties. For safety purposes, volunteer patrol duties do not place volunteers in confrontational situations. Patrol duties enable the volunteers to serve as the eyes and ears of the Department. They are equipped with radios and are always able to communicate with police officers.
As the program grew in size, a rank structure was developed and implemented. This allows the volunteers to advance within the program.
