Palmdale Sheriff's Station

#ThrowbackThursday #LASD The Search and Rescue teams function as the Sheriff’s Department’s official emergency response unit. The unit provides services to those citizens who become stranded, lost, or injured in the mountainous areas of Los Angeles County.

There are eight individual teams: Altadena Mountain Rescue Team, Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team, Antelope Valley Search and Rescue, Malibu Search and Rescue Team, Santa Clarita Valley Search and Rescue Team, Montrose Search and Rescue, San Dimas Mountain Rescue Team and Avalon Search and Rescue Team.

Most of the team members are Los Angeles County Sheriff Reserve Deputies, while others are dedicated volunteers from the local communities to assist in search and rescue operations. All teams are under the direction of the local Sheriff’s Stations.

Because team members would go into steep and treacherous terrain, possibly at night or in the rain, it is imperative that all members are well trained. In addition to academy training, Search and Rescue Team members undergo extensive mountaineering training. Also, they must hold a current Emergency Medical Technician license and usually must live within a fifteen or twenty minute response time of the station where they serve.

Each team member is selected for his or her physical capabilities, maturity, and willingness to respond at a moment’s notice in emergency search and rescue situations. The men and women of the team are highly trained in technical rope rescue, swift water, snow and ice operations search theory and tracking.

As a part of the state of California mutual aid system, the teams also provides support search and rescue efforts throughout California and the United States.

They are ready to respond to emergency 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, to “anywhere in the wilderness that someone needs help”!

In 1992, the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station began as a neighborhood sub-station of the Antelope Valley Sheriff’s Station in a 5,500-square-foot storefront office on the corner of 10th Street East and Palmdale Boulevard. In 1998, the facility was enlarged to 13,500-square-feet and became its own station, no longer under the command of Antelope Valley Sheriff’s Station. Although it obtained full station status, the Palmdale facility lacked several key features needed for operating efficiently including a jail, secure parking, gas pumps, and a heliport. Space at the station was so limited that staff members had to turn sideways to pass each other in the hallways.

In May 2004, construction began on a new station to service the city of Palmdale and the surrounding unincorporated areas. Construction was completed, and the new Palmdale Sheriff’s Station opened its doors on June 12, 2006. The state-of-the-art facility encompasses a 47,000-square-foot main building; a 7,800-square-foot jail; and an 8,399-square-foot motor pool and storage building. The station is located on 11.5 acres at the corner of Sierra Highway and Avenue Q in the City of Palmdale.

The new Palmdale Sheriff’s Station provides an approachable facade and practical floor plan that ensures maximum efficiency and a user-friendly environment for Department personnel and the public alike. The station will accommodate the continued growth and expansion of the community which it proudly serves for years to come.

LASD and Department of Justice – Antelope Valley Settlement Agreement

June 4, 2015

On April 28th, 2015, the United States, the County of Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department entered into a Settlement Agreement with the goal of ensuring that police services are delivered to the people of Lancaster and Palmdale, and the surrounding unincorporated areas, in a manner that fully complies with the Constitution and laws of the United States, effectively ensures public and deputy safety, and promotes public confidence in LASD and its deputies.

LASD entered into the agreement because it wishes to ensure that its department is functioning at an exceptional level and that it has positive relationships with all its communities.

Below are the related documents, including the complaint filed by the United States of America against the County of Los Angeles and the full Settlement Agreement.
