The City of Dinuba is embarking on a city wide survey called “Project Listen”. The goal of the project is to make contact with every household within the city limits and gather information via a questionnaire about the local needs and wants of our community related to public safety, streets, sanitation, sewer, transportation, parks and infrastructure. The city will be divided into four sections during the project and one section will be surveyed at a time. The kick off date for this community project will be October 15, 2011. On this date Volunteers will be going house to house in the south east section of the city in an attempt to gather information from each household utilizing the questionnaire. Once the entire city is surveyed, all of the data received will be compiled and presented to the City Council for goal setting and problem solving.

Community Volunteer Patrol
The Community Volunteers are a group of civic-minded residents who have expressed an interest in working toward a better community. The volunteers are trained in police operations during an eight-session Volunteer Academy. Once they have completed the training, the volunteers are released for ride-a-longs, patrol, district attorney paperwork delivery and community event assistance. Investigators and patrol officers normally conduct these details, their time is free providing direct services to the Community.
This program is part of the overall Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving Philosophy that is employed by the Department and City Government of Dinuba. The Program is a relationship building activity used by the front line officers and supervisors to provide opportunity for communications with the community. It has been very effective in identifying concerns, problems and approaches in dealing with issues.
