The area of Lakeside became a town site in 1886. Lakeside’s motto is “A Friendly Place to Live.” The Barona Band of Mission Indians, who have called the area home for thousands of years, continue to be an important part of the rich culture of the Lakeside area. The community of Lakeside boasts four lakes, countless miles of hiking and equestrian trails, championship golf, and the Barona resort and casino. What Lakeside is perhaps best known for is its rich equestrian history with a large rodeo (first held in 1920!) and the second largest Western Parade with the most equestrians in California. Lakeside’s roots are firmly planted in the spirit of the “wild west.”

The Lakeside Substation was opened in May of 2015 and serves the unincorporated areas of Lakeside and El Cajon and the Barona Indian Reservation. The service area covers approximately 81 square miles, with a population of almost 71,000. There are a total of 34 patrol deputies, five Detectives, one School Resource Deputy, one Special Purpose (Barona) Deputy, two Crime Suppression deputies, two Community Service Officers, three professional staff, one Crime Prevention Specialist, five sergeants and one lieutenant serving the command area. We are supported by one Crime and Intelligence Analysts. Our mission is to reduce crime by using information to disrupt crime trends and to partner with our communities to best serve the public with respect and professionalism.
