Police Update

By April 8, 2016Security

You may have seen articles in the Dallas Morning News recently about the increase in crime in Dallas.

The Dallas Police Department is responding by forming a Violent Crimes Task Force (VCTF). Our Neighborhood Police Officer, Jeff LaBarba, tells us that the Central Division, which includes our neighborhood, will see a considerable increase in patrols.

In addition to our regular patrol officers, the VCTF will add an additional 170 officers who will focus on a target area, which includes our neighborhood. The VCTF combines officers from the K9 unit, gang unit, narcotics, swat and patrol units to address violent crime.

This is a very positive effort and is already showing results in the form of narcotics and gun arrests. You can follow VCTF on Twitter @Dallas PDVCTF.
