Department Standards Manual
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has begun to post publicly available policies, procedures, and training materials pursuant to the requirements of Senate Bill 978. Since the election of Sheriff Chad Bianco in late 2018, the department has embarked upon an intricate and wide-ranging review of nearly all polices and many of its procedures. In so doing, the information posted here will be undergoing routine additions and will be periodically updated on this website as we modernize our manuals and best-practices to a degree never undertaken before.
Any redactions you may see, which there are relatively few, result only from a genuine need to withhold a procedure, tactical practice, or privacy concern for the safety of department personnel or the public.
