The Community Assistance Program (CAP) is a select group of sworn deputies who are tasked with the collateral assignment of assisting the community in a variety of functions, which are typically outside of the normal patrol response to calls for service. CAP Deputies are given the authority and responsibility to develop new and innovative responses to community and quality of life issues that attempt to address the root cause of disturbances, rather than just the effects.
The overall purpose of this program is to provide the citizens and community with the highest level of professional service. CAP Deputies coordinate meetings with neighborhood residents and Home Owners Associations to address individual or group problem areas and providing information for implementation of Neighborhood Watch Programs. This program is also designed to work closely with the business community to provide assistance with crime prevention and events.
CAP Deputies assist with, or facilitate community events, such as;
- Safe N Sane Trick or Treat
- Public Safety Day
- Christmas to Remember
- Sheriff’s Office Toy Drive
- Community meetings
- Neighborhood Watch
CAP Deputies are dedicated to improving and maintaining the quality of life that is shared among Amador County residents.
