DINUBA POLICE DEPARTMENY TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
On April 26, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Dinuba Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its eighth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to The Dinuba Police Department located at 680 S. Alta Avenue, Dinuba. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
The Dinuba Police Department Explorers participated in the Sixth Annual Central Valley Law Enforcement Explorer Competition held at the Tulare County Fairgrounds on the weekend of March 28th – 30th. This annual competition is a time for Explorer Posts from Police Departments all over the Central Valley to come together and be challenged both physically and mentally through real-life police scenarios. These types of scenarios are similar to what Police Officers face every day on the streets they protect and serve. Through the Explorer Program, participants learn a variety of skills through hands-on training, classroom instruction, and real-life police scenarios. The competition tests the skills the Explorers have been taught throughout the year.
The Explorer Program is a youth-based program in partnership with Boy Scouts of America and Learning for Life, which many local Police Departments have chosen to sponsor. Explorer Advisors are chosen from within the Police Departments and devote themselves to teaching and spending time with the Explorers. Programs such as this give local law enforcement agencies the opportunity to mentor youth and give back to the community that they serve.

Water is California's most precious natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future.
When our state enjoys a year of abundant rain and our reservoirs are full, it is easy to think that our water supply is endless. But in California, the next drought may be just around the corner. After three consecutive dry years, California is now experiencing a serious drought. We simply cannot afford to waste any water.
No meetings scheduled at this time.
The Dinuba Police Department working in partnership with the Tulare County Sheriff’s department is proud to endorse Project Lifesaver. Project Lifesaver is a rapid response program that provides safety for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome, Autism and similar disorders which cause wandering and disorientation. Dinuba residents who are enrolled in the operation Lifesaver program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal. Once the police department is notified that a person is missing, Operation lifesaver deploys specially trained personnel with a reliable tracking system to quickly locate and return missing adults and children, to their families. Recovery times average less than 30 minutes. By forming partnerships with local law enforcements, project lifesaver is staffed by Police Officers and volunteers.
This program provides a reduced fare for ADA eligible Dinuba Transit riders. This application is only for persons with disabilites that cannot walk to or from a designated bus stop or cannot board Dinuba Transit's Fixed Route service without assistance.
Congratulations to the City of Dinuba Finance Department for winning the 2013 GFOA Budget Award.

Status of Construction: During the months of October, November and December construction of the bridge superstructure was completed and the bridge was post tensioned, which made the bridge self supporting and allowed removal of the bridge falsework from the Kings River floodplain to commence. Additionally, the Contractor also began work on construction of the vehicle barrier rails on the bridge, which includes a “Type 80 Barrier.” The “Type 80 Barrier” is one of the State’s approved “see through” barriers, which is intended to minimize impairment of views of the river from the bridge and will serve as an aesthetic feature on the new bridge.
