Police Department continues rolling out new programs

In an effort to keep Sunnyvale safe, the Sunnyvale Police Department has rolled out several new programs, including:

  • The Safe Exchange - location at the PD where you can conduct exchanges with people you may not know (such as online purchases).
  • The Take Me Home Program - register a family member with a disability to enhance communication in an emergency situation.
  • Video Crime Watch Program - let the PD know if you have video cameras that may provide footage if a crime takes place in your area.
  • Prescription Drop Off.
  • School Resource Officers.

The Department is in the process of developing a Citizens Police Academy as well. For more information on any of these programs, please visit POLICE.

The COVID-19 vaccine is still in very limited supply and is still being prioritized to those in Phase 1A (i.e., healthcare workers). However, limited supplies of vaccine may be available for persons who meet the Phase 1B criteria (persons 65 and older, or persons with underlying medical conditions). Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) is collecting names of persons to register for the vaccine as additional doses of the vaccine become available.
