Pauma Tribal Police Department

The Pauma Tribal Police Department was established in August 2006 to prevent crime, preserve the peace, protect property, prevent unlawful disturbances, make arrests when necessary and to investigate public offenses occurring on the Pauma/Yuima Reservation and trust lands. The department and its individual members work, without favor or prejudice, cooperatively with the public and other public safety agencies to provide a safe community and strive to enhance the quality of life for tribal residents, employees and guests. The rights of the people as provided by the Pauma Band’s Articles of Association and the Constitution of the United States are protected through fair and impartial enforcement of the law.

Each participant will make a voluntary cash only donation, which will be collected by an on-duty Pauma Tribal Police Officer. You can visit the Pauma Checkpoint and request an officer to meet you there, or you can stop by the Tribal Police station and make your cash donation there. We will be accepting donations the entire month of November. The cash donation will be as follows: 

 Community Members/ TRAP Employees/ Guest: At your discretion 

Checkpoint Security Officer/ Tribal Police Officer: $50.00 

Tribal Police Sergeant: $75.00 

Tribal Police Chief: TBD 

The Pauma Tribal Police Department challenges everyone to get involved this year. Help us help the community be a stronger and safer community for our youth to thrive in. All donations will be used to benefit the youth of the reservation. Previous years, we made a $2000.00 donation to assist with the infrastructure of the JOM/ Youth Center.
