Tucked away in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, Saratoga is a lovely residential community with a small-town feel. The City is well known for its excellent schools, fine dining, unique shops, and distinctive cultural institutions. Saratoga offers a high quality of life to its residents and a chance to escape the hustle of Silicon Valley.

When to Call 911
8/25/2016  One of the greatest assets to local law enforcement are the residents who spot suspicious activity and immediately report it to 911. The citizens of our community serve as the extended eyes and ears of the Sheriff's Office and with their support, the Sheriff’s Office is better able to stop and solve crimes.

However, many people are reluctant to call 911 when something feels off. If any situation in your neighborhood feels out of the ordinary or makes you feel uncomfortable, that is the time to call 911 or the non-emergency Sheriff’s Office line at 408.299.2311.
