The Arrowhead Area is a part of the statewide highway patrol agency. The office is located in Running Springs in the San Bernardino Mountains. The San Bernardino Mountains are approximately one hour east of Los Angeles, and are comprised of the resort communities of; Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Running Springs, Big Bear City, Angelus Oaks and many more. Within the Arrowhead Area jurisdiction, there are over 500 miles of unincorporated mountainous rural roadways. In addition to these roadways, hundreds more off highway vehicle trails and National Forest Service roads are also patrolled by Arrowhead personnel. The patrol vehicle fleet is made up of SUVs and Ford Crown Victoria Interceptors. With the different types of vehicles, the officers have the ability to catch speeding motorists on the mountainous roads, or respond to critically injured off-road victims that could be miles from any pavement. The Arrowhead Area is deeply embedded in the diverse communities it serves. Our officers do not only write citations, but have ongoing community policing, public meetings and other programs that allow for open communication with residents and visitors. The California Highway Patrol officers in the Arrowhead Area pride themselves on being courteous, honest, professional, principled, respectful, integrity, dedication and espirit de corps.
