Community Safety Teams

Community Safety Program

We can help you set up a safety/watch program in your neighborhood. We can also come out to your neighborhood and do presentations on whatever topic you need addressed, including but not limited to; setting up a program in your neighborhood, signs of drug use, bullying, suicide prevention, self-defense, social media concerns, crime prevention, and home safety.

Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS)

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office is a proud sponsor of the Volunteers in Police Service, a nationally recognized program which is committed to developing a spirit of cooperation and partnership with the community. In conjunction with the Utah County Sheriff’s Jeep Patrol we recruit, train, and retain talented volunteers who will be encouraged to participate in meaningful community safety, security, and service programs, in addition to emergency response situations.

Neighborhood Watch & Community Safety Teams

These programs help make your neighborhood a safer environment. Benefits of these sorts of programs include increased emergency preparedness, reduced crime, getting to know your neighbors and community issues, getting to work with law enforcement to prevent crime, peace of mind, and a quicker response time in emergencies. To become involved in your Neighborhood Watch or Community Safety Team, call the Utah County Sheriff’s Office – Eagle Mountain Division at (801) 789-6701.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Volunteers are trained to help communities mitigate disasters during the first 72 hours following a disaster when damaged roads, disrupted communications, high telephone call volume, etc., may restrict access by professional emergency response teams. The purpose of CERT training is to provide citizens with the basic skills that they will need to handle virtually all of their own needs and then to respond to their community’s needs in the aftermath of a disaster. CERT training in Eagle Mountain is provided by Unified Fire Authority.

We offer this program 2-3 times per year. It is a self-defense empowerment program for women ages 13 and up. It helps to have teenage girls take this class with their mothers because of the mature subjects taught. We teach awareness, reduction and self-defense techniques. The program is 15 hours. This class fills up quickly so if interested, contact us to get on the list.
