Cerritos residents can make a significant contribution to improving the community's safety by joining the Virtual Block Club (VBC).

As a VBC team member, you will serve as the "eyes and ears" of the community for Cerritos Sheriff's deputies, and are encouraged to share crime trend and prevention information with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers; monitor your neighborhood and report suspicious people and vehicles; report graffiti and neighborhood quality of life problems; perform neighborhood disaster response and homeland defense duties; support the City's Volunteers on Patrol in emergencies; and participate in Citywide disaster response exercises.

Members of the VBC receive:

  • Immediate BOLOs (Be on the Lookout) when appropriate
  • Weekly crime summaries and maps
  • Emergency preparedness training opportunities
