Our History

Following the tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001, state and local government officials have increased opportunities for citizens to become an integral part of protecting the homeland and supporting the local first responders.

Citizen Corps programs build on the successful efforts that are in place in many communities around the country to prevent crime and respond to emergencies.

We continuously strive to  "Make Temecula Safer" through:
  • Training
