Police Department Press Releases

On 04/18/18 at approximately 2030 hours, Officers with the Dinuba Police Department were dispatched to an injury traffic collision involving a vehicle and a motorcycle at the intersection of North Alta and Sequoia. The 27 year old Motorcycle rider was airlifted to an area hospital with major injuries. The other vehicle fled the scene east bound on Sequoia.

The vehicle that fled the scene is described as a White older model Chevrolet truck with a camper shell and loud exhaust. The vehicle should have extensive damage to the passenger’s side area.

Anyone with information regarding this vehicle or who may have seen the accident is encouraged to contact the Dinuba Police Department at (559) 591-5911.

Each one of us became peace officers to help and serve our communities. But due to proposed legislation in Sacramento, we’re concerned about the ability to do just that.

Early last week, Assemblymember Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) and Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) announced they would be introducing legislation that would raise the standard for legal review, in hindsight, of an officer’s decision to use force. We are concerned about the repercussions of this change for public safety.

If our officers cannot respond to life and death situations until backup arrives or are forced to employ a checklist during rapidly advancing and extraordinarily dangerous situations, ultimately everyone involved is placed at a higher risk. Regardless of any outcome, we will always be here for you, to help and to serve. Please leave your comments below and email and call these Assemblymembers to voice your opinion.

Assemblymember Shirly Weber 916-319-2079

Assemblymember Kevin McCarty 916-319-2007.
