Mammoth Lakes Police Department (MLPD) has submitted a preliminary application to the State of California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle (OHMVR) Division for the 2022 Grant Cycle. The public may view and comment on the application by visiting the State Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program website.

With the 2021 Grant Award, MLPD conducted summer and fall OHV patrols on the Polaris Razor. Officers contacted 79 OHV riders issuing warnings for speeding, not wearing helmets, and camping in illegal areas (including several with illegal campfires).  They also checked for current green sticker registration on OHV vehicles and engaged with riders for community relations and occasionally, offering directions. The MLPD OHV patrol responded to one UTV Rollover Traffic Collison and patrolled the dirt roads around Crowley Lake for 4th of July festivities.

Please read more about what the MLPD OHV Program offers the community of Mammoth Lakes in the Press Release or by viewing the full application at The OHMVR Division’s website provides detailed instructions for accessing the preliminary application and submitting comments.
