The Ranchita Substation was opened in 1993. Prior to 1993 resident deputies worked from home. The substation provides law enforcement
services to the communities of Warner Springs and Ranchita. Within these areas are several Indian Reservations - Santa Ysabel, Los Coyotes
and Mesa Grande.
The substation is responsible for one-third of the county - just over 1,400 square miles from the Mexican border to the Riverside County line, and from the
Imperial County line to the eastern slopes of Palomar Mountain. The Warner Springs Ranch area is a tourist location with natural hot springs, golf course, and a
glider port that brings in thousands of visitors throughout the year.
This area is patrolled by the Sheriff’s Department. Services include law enforcement, off-road enforcement, crime prevention, senior volunteer patrol,
school resource officer, and more.
