The town of Pine Valley is a beautiful rural community where residents and visitors can enjoy the fresh air while partaking in activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing and relaxation. The Pine Valley Substation is responsible for serving an area of over 400 square miles which also includes the communities of Guatay, Descanso, and Mount Laguna.

The Boulevard Office is a satellite office of the Pine Valley Substation. This office serves the communities of Boulevard and Jacumba - an area which includes a population of over 2,000. These rural communities are located in Eastern San Diego along the Mexico border.

In addition to patrol beat deputies, the Pine Valley Substation also maintains a Senior Resource Officer in collaboration with the Mountain Empire Unified School District.
