Community Services Officers

Community service officers are available to make public presentations for organizations, community groups, churches and schools throughout Placer County on a variety of topics.

School Resource Deputies 

School resource deputies are responsible for teaching on high school, junior high, and elementary school campuses, developing and maintaining a good rapport with teachers, students, parents and administrators, as well as maintaining a law enforcement presence on campus and at school events.

Problem-Oriented Policing

The P.O.P. deputy deals with a range of community problems and crime prevention issues. The goal is to understand and relieve community- and business-based problems by helping to develop solutions to address reoccurring problems.

Field Community Service Officer

The field community services officer (FCSO) is an augmentation to the patrol division. The term “field community services officer” or “FCSO” is used only to distinguish the differing duties between those of a traditional CSO and a CSO working in the field.

Youth & Community Outreach

The youth and community outreach deputy develops and maintains relationships with at-risk youth and provides educational programs that bolster the value of drug prevention and eradication in Placer County
