As the Turlock City Council and Turlock Police Department address crime trends and a better plan to provide public safety, a priority concern of Turlock citizens, another law is on the Nov. 8 election ballot that will affect crime throughout the State of California. Assembly Bill 109 and Proposition 47 have been attributed by both police and citizens to have noticeably impacted crime in Turlock. With notable impacts experienced in Turlock as a result of previously passed laws, Turlock voters will be deciding whether Proposition 57, another law geared toward prison population reduction, will be the right path for the State to take. AB 109, which was opposed by local District-12 State Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen (R), was signed by Governor Jerry Brown in 2011.

Plans for a family entertainment center with a 34 lane bowling alley are currently under review by the City of Turlock. Turlock has been without a bowling alley for nearly two decades, and with the newest project coming before the City, it may be possible for a bowling alley to return to Turlock. The City of Turlock has entertained the idea of a bowling alley since 2010. Originally, the project was a 52,000 square foot proposed family entertainment center that was going to include 34 bowling lanes on Monte Vista Avenue, near Crowell Road, across from CSU, Stanislaus, which was being planned from developers and then-PMZ realtors Jerry Powell, Jim Theis, and Rod Scott (the current developer).
Turlock Police Department sent out a press release that a male shooting suspect is on the loose and should be considered armed and dangerous. Central Valley TV first reported that the suspect allegedly fired on another man who was driving a stolen vehicle early Friday morning.
In 2014, a road tax was being pushed by some local politicians, such as Councilman Steven Nascimento. The Turlock tax hike proposal became known as Measure B on the November 2014 ballot. Before that measure went out to the voters, Turlock City Council discussed spending $50,000 on roads, out of a $32.4 million General Fund.
