Law enforcement in the City of Del Mar is provided by San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. The San Diego County Sheriff’s North Coastal Station is composed of 107 law enforcement staff commanded by Captain John Maryon and is located at 175 North El Camino Real Encinitas, CA 92024. In addition to serving the Del Mar community, the North Coastal Station also serves the neighborhoods of Vista, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach, Camp Pendleton, San Onofre and Del Dios. The city has contracted the North Coastal Station to provide Del Mar with a traffic unit, a patrol unit, an investigative unit, a narcotics unit, a crime prevention unit and other law enforcement services at the various events hosted by the Del Mar Fairgrounds throughout the year. Del Mar Criminal Defense Attorney Vik Monder has personally worked with the North Coastal Station for years. He understands first-hand how criminal investigations are handled by each of these crime units. Traffic deputies are responsible for enforcing the California Vehicle Code by controlling traffic and conducting collision investigations. Patrol deputies are responsible for providing routine patrols in the neighborhoods, responding to service calls, conducting preliminary investigations of complaints of suspicious criminal activity and making arrests. For general intent crimes, the investigative unit is responsible for responding to criminal leads and/or arrests that are made by the patrol unit. They will generally be conducting investigations of alleged violations of the California Penal Code. For specific intent crimes, there are specialized task units that are responsible for conducting follow up investigations for alleged cases of child abuse, juvenile intervention, elder abuse, sexual assault, sex offender management, domestic violence, homicide, auto thefts, and financial crimes. For crimes involving the possession, sale and/or distribution of controlled substances, the narcotics unit is responsible for enforcing the California Health and Safety Code. This entails a narcotics task force conducting complex investigations and seizing property involving drug offenses. Lastly, the crime prevention unit focuses on reaching out to the community to assist neighborhood watch groups, provide crime prevention education, crime alerts for residential areas and security consultations for commercial areas. Criminal Defense Attorney Vik Monder has built a great working relationship with the supervisors assigned to each criminal unit at the San Diego County Sheriff’s North Coastal Station and this will go a long way for your defense at the onset of your case.
