In December 2013, the Turlock City Council approved an ordinance to ban aggressive panhandling in Turlock.
This alleged panhandler, standing near the Monte Vista Avenue exit to the Target parking lot, may have felt the effects of this initiative.
Here, a Turlock police officer has stopped the alleged panhandler to talk to him. This may be a more frequent occurrence as the weather begins to heat up and more panhandlers step onto Turlock streets.
