Wilton Service Center
Public hours of operation:
The Wilton Service Center is shared with the Wilton Fire Department as well as California Highway Patrol. This office handles non-emergency calls for the rural areas of Delta, Wilton, Herald, Freeport, Laguna West, and the unincorporated areas of Galt. One Problem Oriented Policing (POP) Officer, Office Manager and 10 Volunteers staff the building. Calls for service may include non in-progress crime reports, neighbor concerns and quality of life issues. The Safety Center is a friendly, professional place where one is offered a cup of coffee while visiting or discussing a concern. Other services provided include fingerprinting, crime prevention activities and community meetings.
The Volunteers assist citizens either over the telephone or in person. Most of the time this will result in writing a crime report. Those who are interested are encouraged to go through additional training and can perform "VIPS Patrol" duties. VIPS stands for "Volunteers In Partnership With The Sheriff." Two uniformed Volunteers drive a marked light duty pick up truck and are considered the "eyes and ears" of the department. They perform duties such as vacation security checks, report of illegal trash dumping, suspicious activity as well as being a positive figure in the communities. They assist Officers as needed in non-confrontational situations.
Through the Wilton Service Center, the POP Officer implemented an "owner applied number program". The owner applied numbers are additional identification numbers placed on personal property. Through the program, the property owner is assigned a specific number. These numbers are used by Law Enforcement throughout the state so that property can be identified if stolen and returned to the owner. Any resident of Sacramento County interested in participating in this program can contact the Wilton Safety Center. The OAN program was established for the residents of Sacramento County.
