New Tip Lines for Crime Tips to Police Department

In an effort to strengthen community partnerships and enhance public trust, the Reedley Police Department has implemented two new "TIP Line" numbers for the public to call in tips or specific information regarding criminal activity. These types of calls could be related to ongoing drug activity, gang activity, other criminal related conduct or "quality of life" issues that the public would like to report. These "tips" can now be called in telephonically through two separate phone numbers, one for English speaking citizens and one for Spanish speaking citizens.

Sustainable Aviation Project

The Cities of Reedley and Mendota have partnered and recently been awarded a $1,071,348 grant from the Fresno County Transportation Authority for the purchase of four (4) electric trainer aircraft, and utilizing partnering organizations, provide flight training cost assistance for low income veterans, students and others from disadvantaged communities to demonstrate the feasibility of advanced electrified aviation technology to reduce traffic congestion, energy consumption and air emissions resulting from less vehicular traffic and less surface street congestion; and improve mobility in more densely developed areas by providing convenient and direct transit service. This is a groundbreaking project for the communities of Reedley and Mendota to be a part of, and there is exciting news coming as the program takes shape.
