The Barstow Area is the second largest geographical area in the department and is responsible for patrolling the most freeway miles in the State. Our area patrols Interstate 15, Interstate 40, State Route 247, State Route 127, State Route 58, U.S. Highway 395 and approximately 1,400 miles of county roads. Inside the Barstow CHP patrol area are two major U.S. Military sites including Fort Irwin Army Base and the Marine Corps Logistical Base of Barstow, as well as thousands of acres of Off Highway Vehicle riding areas, Dumont Dunes, and various small county communities.
Another unique part of the Barstow CHP Area is that we are home to the Barstow CHP Dispatch Center and the Mountain Pass Resident Post. Our Dispatch Center is not only responsible for the Barstow CHP Area, but also the Needles, Victorville, and Morongo CHP Areas. The Mountain Pass Resident Post is home to several CHP Officers and they are responsible for patrolling the surrounding area.
At the Barstow Area office we offer a variety of programs to the public. Such programs include new driver education, senior driving courses, and child safety seat instruction and installation.
