Housing & Urban Development (HUD) Annual Report:

Planning is also working on the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Annual Report and the Office of Planning Report both of which are due April 1st.




In addition to responding to 148 calls for service, there were 119 officer-initiated incidents, including 38 traffic stops, and a total of 20 officer reports taken.  Officers made 3 felony arrests, 6 misdemeanor arrests, issued 3 misdemeanor citations, and 3 infraction citations during the period of February 22, 2024 through February 29, 2024.


During the two-week period of February 22, 2024 through February 29, 2024, our Dispatch Center received 353 inbound calls for service.  In addition, they responded to 35 incoming 911 calls.  All calls were answered within 10 seconds of their ring time.


Officers continue to participate in POST Portal Training and Lexipol Daily Training Bulletins.  Other POST online training continues for Patrol and Dispatch personnel.


We are excited to have been approved for transforming our former file/storage room into a new patrol office for our patrol officers!  This will be funded by our Cal Cops grant overage and is a much-needed upgrade.  This also means that our Community Service Officers will have a larger space to work as they’ll be taking over the current Patrol office.

Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise.” –Anonymous
