Crime affects the community as a whole. It can endanger our personal safety, damage public and private property, create fear and lower our quality of life. The goal of the Turlock Police Department Crime Prevention Unit is to strengthen Police and Community Partnerships, so that together, we can improve the safety of the Turlock community. We do this by discussing crime prevention techniques and empowering Turlock Citizens with knowledge and resources to help them reduce the chances that they will become a victim. The safety of our community is a shared responsibility and crime prevention is everybody's business.
