The Rancho Santa Fe Patrol was founded by the Rancho Santa Fe Association in 1976 as a replacement for the County Deputy position that was eliminated by the Sheriff. RSF Patrol is designed to function as a security service for the RSF Association membership.
Over the past 42 years, RSF Patrol has responded to thousands of calls and assisted Covenant residents with a variety of issues. Patrol provides coverage 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The Patrol office is located at 16936 El Fuego and is dispatched from a joint powers dispatch agency. The Rancho Santa Fe Patrol is not affiliated with any other security service or alarm company.
The Patrol works very closely with the Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol. Over the past 38 years the working relationship has fine-tuned it's procedures and policies. In 1997, the California Highway Patrol and the San Diego Sheriff's Department established a “storefront” within the Patrol office.
