To inform you – Oncor is upgrading the transmission electric grid and using helicopters to install the equipment in order to minimize the impact on the grid and to customers. We regret any alarm this may cause and will complete the work as quickly and as safely as possible.
This practice is nothing new and is performed by utilities across the country. This practice is completely safe in order so not to disrupt the electric service. We are working with a company that is highly trained in transmission utility work by helicopter. These “helicopter lineman” have an abundance of experience in this type of work. Landing zones for refueling and restocking are pre-determined before work ever begins. This work lends itself to a helicopter because of:
- A lack of easy access to many rights-of-way in the required areas.
- The wire’s light weight.
- It makes it quicker and means we are not driving into easements or through neighborhoods.
We will notify the residents in advance that may see or hear the helicopter in their neighborhood. Attached the picture of the Helicopter with the identification number clearly identified for your reference. The work will continue in areas of Dallas through the end of the year.
Areas where work will be conducting this work include;
- Kirkland Park
- Mt. Creek
- West Levee
- Cedar Crest
On June 1, 2014, the Dallas Police Department launched its new Records Management System which is used to house offense and arrest records.
The following video is a tutorial on how to look up police reports on the department’s public portal.
On Sunday, March 29, 2015 at approximately 9:31 a.m., officers responded to a call at the King Spa located in the 2100 block of Royal Lane. The caller, Alicia Carroll, B/F/28, reported to officers that she left her child with a friend the night before and she could not locate her.
After further investigation, officers determined that Ms. Carroll had exited the King Spa business with the child on March 28, 2015 at approximately 10:00 p.m., and then left the location without the child. The staff at King Spa stated that Ms. Carroll was asked to leave after she brought alcohol into the premise, which was against the business’s policy. Multiple patrol units and Air1 responded to the location and began a search for the child. During the search, at approximately 11:15 a.m., officers were flagged down by some citizens who previously observed the child. After officers located the child, a B/F/7, near the original offense location, she was taken to Children’s Medical Center for treatment but was not injured.
Detectives believe that Ms. Carroll and her daughter climbed into a dumpster at 11300 Newkirk because Ms. Carroll thought that police had been called and were chasing her. Sometime, during the night, Ms. Carroll left her daughter in the dumpster and could not remember anything the following morning.
A Child Protective Services referral was completed, and the child is currently in foster care with CPS. Ms. Carroll was arrested and charged with Abandoning a Child in Imminent Danger F/2 Penal Code 22.041. She has no previous arrests and her bond has been set at $25,000.
This offense is documented on case number 069236-2015.
