About the Antelope Valley OHV Team
In order to tackle the high volume of off-highway vehicle complaints, the Palmdale Station Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Team was created in 2000, initially concentrating on issues within the city of Palmdale. The team’s area of patrol eventually expanded to cover the entire area of Northern Los Angeles County.
The team is comprised of personnel from both the Palmdale and Lancaster Sheriff Stations and consists of one sergeant and nine deputies. The Antelope Valley Off-Highway Vehicle Team uses both stations and the Quartz Hill Substation for deployments. The team deploys throughout the week and weekends to handle OHV complaints, which are called in by the public to either Palmdale Station, Lancaster Station or the 5th District County Supervisor’s Office.
