Rules and Regulations
Sunriver Police Department
Each year, honest citizens turn in numerous wallets, credit cards, cell phones, key rings/fobs and personal identification, such as driver's licenses, to the Sunriver Police Department.
Many of these items are found on the miles of bike paths that Sunriver has to offer. It is not advisable to ride a bike or walk the pathways with items in your unfastened pockets. The leg motion from riding a bike or walking can cause items to work their way out of your pocket.
Key rings are one of the most difficult items to return to an owner. Engrave or attach your phone number to your key ring.
Do not put your name or physical address on your keys or key ring.
If you find personal item(s) please feel free to turn them over to your local police department.

Lost or Found Property
Sunriver Police Department was established in 1969. It was known as the Sunriver Department of Public Safety and the first patrol officer was hired. At that time, the lone officer worked for the developer and was commissioned as a deputy sheriff. The developer provided the officer with a patrol vehicle and the Sheriff provided him with the decals, radio and lights. The officer was the sole Sunriver Police Officer for several years until he was hired full time by the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office. The Sunriver Department of Public Safety continued to work under the developers until the Sunriver Owners Association took over in 1987. At that time, the Sunriver Department of Public Safety along with the Sunriver Fire and Road Departments were transferred to the Owners Association. During this time period, the Sunriver Police Officers continued to be commissioned through the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office.
The year 2002 was another milestone in the history of the Sunriver Police Department. In 2002, the community of Sunriver voted to pass a Special County Service District to provide public safety services to the Community of Sunriver. Sunriver Department of Public Safety became Sunriver Police Department, at that time.
On April 8, 2003 the Sunriver Police Department received accreditation from the Oregon Accreditation Alliance. We have maintained our accredited status since that date.
