Victor Valley Transit Partners With The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department To Develop New Transit Team

The Victor Valley (CA) Sheriff’s Station will now have a team, comprised of one sergeant and four deputies, assigned to the Victor Valley Transit Division.

The team will work directly with the Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA) to enhance the safety of passengers and drivers. Passengers will see deputies riding the buses, as well as monitoring activity at bus stops and the Victor Valley Transportation Center.

“Victor Valley Transit and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department joining forces is a powerful alliance dedicated to safeguarding passenger safety,” VVTA Board Chair Liz Becerra said. “By pooling our expertise, we can effectively address security concerns, deter criminal activities, and swiftly respond to emergencies. This partnership fosters a sense of security and promotes the well-being of commuters, making public transportation a reliable and trusted mode of travel for all.”

“Because quality of life and the safety of the community is a priority for both agencies, this partnership is something they are excited to implement. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department desires for each passenger on the Victor Valley Transit’s public transportation system to feel confident they can travel to their appointments and social activities safely,” according to a press release.

“Cultivating a steadfast partnership between Victor Valley Transit and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, we embark on a shared mission to forge meaningful connections within our community,” VVTA CEO Nancie Goff said. “With every interaction, we aim to educate and inform riders, while enhancing the overall safety and security of our public transportation system.”
