Neighborhood Resource Officer ProgramThe Neighborhood Resource Officer Program (NRO’s) will consist of a team of officers that are assigned to a geographic region of Turlock and work with community based groups, faith based groups, neighborhoods, businesses, individual community members and other government organizations. These interactions will identify community issues, concerns and crime trends which cause long term quality of life and livability issues. These officers will work to find the root cause of issues within the community and work diligently to solve those issues. They will work with all units within the Turlock Police Department, take enforcement action when necessary and report their progress on an on-going basis to the Command Staff at the Police Department.
While the framework for this program is laid out, the unit is not deployed as current staffing does not allow for officers to be assigned to this work group. Our hope is to have the unit working in the future as staffing increases.
