City of Turlock Awarded $500,000 Grant for Community Oriented Policing
TPA congratulates the City of Turlock for being awarded a grant in the amount of $500,00 from the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Hiring Program administered by the U.S. Department of Justice.
In 2019, hiring in the City’s Police Department was severely affected by the City’s financial situation. Because of those staffing issues, four Neighborhood Resource Officer (N.R.O.) positions remained vacant. With this grant the City is now able to replace those officers and continue its primary objective of enhancing the safety of children in schools and building engagement with surrounding neighborhoods.
This latest achievement is another example of the commitment of the City to pursue its mission to protect and promote the quality of life of its residents and the prosperity of its businesses.
