🐶 🐾 🐱 National Animal Control Officer Appreciation Week is celebrated every second full week of April. The week is designed to say thank you and to show appreciation to all the animal control officers who are dedicated to helping pets and people in the community every day. Animal control officers pick up stray animals and sometimes even DOA's (Dead on Arrival). There is more to their job. Officers seek justice in cases of abused, neglected and abandoned animals; they conduct humane investigations and bring in helpless animals. They protect animals from abusers and people from dangerous animals. Thank you to our Animal Control Officers, and to all Animal Control Officers everywhere! Be sure to say thank you to an Animal Control Officer this week! 👍 😊 @turlockanimalservices #turlock #turlockpolice #turlockpd #animalcontrolofficer #animalcontrolofficersppreciationweek

Today marks the first day of the National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week! 💛 Most know about the blue and red lines that represent police and fire first responders, but some don't know about the gold line. The gold line lies between the blue and the red lines. The gold line represents Dispatchers that are never seen, but are always heard. TPD thanks all Public Safety Dispatchers who dedicate their lives to serving their communities. 💛 Be sure to thank a Dispatcher this week! 💛 #telecommunicatorsweek2021 #turlock #turlockpd #turlockpolice #thankadispatcher #dispatcherappreciationweek #dispatchers

PRESS RELEASE: UPDATE: HOMICIDE SUSPECT IN CUSTODY https://local.nixle.com/alert/8647172/ 

Posted on Twitter 8 days ago

PRESS RELEASE: UPDATE: HOMICIDE SUSPECT IN CUSTODY On August 4, 2020, at approximately 1:03 a.m., Turlock Police responded to a call of an aggravated assault in progress in the 500 block of Twentieth Century Boulevard. When officers arrived, they located Amythest Cortez, 27 years, of Gustine who was shot. Despite advanced medical care, Ms. Cortez and her unborn baby died. Turlock Police Detectives have been tirelessly working on this case since that night. A suspect was identified relatively early in the investigation as Robert Penaloza Jr., 29 years, of Turlock. It was learned he fled the area immediately and was believed to be in Mexico. An arrest warrant was issued for Penaloza on January 19, 2021. Turlock Police Department worked with investigators from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation as well as the U.S. Marshals Service to locate Penaloza. Through relentless investigation, Turlock Police Detectives identified a possible area in Tijuana, Mexico, they believed Penaloza was living. That information was given to Police in Mexico, who located Penaloza and arrested him. He was turned over to the U.S. Marshals and returned to the United States. He has since been booked in the Stanislaus County Jail on the charges of two counts of murder, shooting into an occupied vehicle and felon in possession of a firearm. The Turlock Police Department would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Ms. Cortez. The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program. Callers can leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be eligible for a cash reward.
