City of Turlock Implements the Installation of Security Systems in Multiple Community Parks(October 12, Turlock, CA) – In an ongoing effort to address the concerns of businesses and residents throughout the City of Turlock, additional surveillance systems have been installed, expanding existing security measures beyond Donnelly and Columbia parks.
"My job as Chief of Police is to ensure we are both proactive, as well as reactive," said Jason Hedden, City of Turlock Police Chief. "Security cameras were previously installed at other locations, and we have now implemented monitoring systems at Broadway and Denair parks. I will continue to assess our progress as we examine ways to keep our parks and communities safe."
The security cameras that have been installed at four parks in Turlock are monitored between the hours of 8:00pm to 8:00am by associated security companies. The cameras are equipped with a siren and two-way communication feature to allow the security company to audibly announce that criminal activity is being recorded to prevent crime.
"I am proud of the work that Chief Hedden continues to do in Turlock," said Mayor Amy Bublak. "His leadership and expertise in law enforcement adds incredible value to our residents and businesses. This expansion of monitoring in our parks increases the safety and security of this wonderful city that we all call home."
"The Turlock City Council has always prioritized the safety of our residents," said City Manager Reagan Wilson. "We are all committed to addressing the needs of our community, and Chief Hedden is doing an outstanding job in his outreach and management of resources."
