   DOK2

On October 30, 2014, at approximately 11:00 p.m., Southeast Officer Lookenbill and Officer Dallatorre, assigned to the Crime Reduction Team, responded to a shooting call at 1200 S. Buckner Boulevard.  Upon arrival, Officer Lookenbill observed the complainant, Mr. Joseph Garcia, lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to his left leg.

As Officer Lookenbill approached, he could see blood spurting from Mr. Garcia’s leg in a manner consistent with an arterial bleed.  Officer Lookenbill immediately put on his gloves and retrieved his tourniquet. Officer Lookenbill then placed the tourniquet on Mr. Garcia’s left leg and cinched it down until it stopped the bleeding.  Dallas Fire & Rescue paramedics arrived and immediately transported Mr. Garcia to Baylor Hospital where he was rushed into emergency surgery.DOK3

The Dallas Fire and Rescue paramedics stated that Officer Lookenbill’s quick thinking by applying the tourniquet saved Mr. Garcia’s life.  They were impressed by Officer Lookenbill’s first aid technique and said without his help Mr. Garcia would have been deceased prior to arriving at Baylor Hospital.

The doctor who performed the surgery said that the application of the tourniquet to Mr. Garcia’s leg to stop the blood loss was the contributing factor in the preservation of his life.

This exceptional work done by Officer Lookenbill exemplifies his dedication and willingness to go above and beyond his call of duty as a Dallas Police Officer. Kudos to Officer Lookenbill.

Exceptional Police Work by Southwest Patrol Officers

Burglar

On October 27, 2014 at approximately 9:50 AM., Southwest Patrol Officers Senior Corporal H. Ebsen, #3717, J. Garcia, #8743 and N. Hunt, #7048 were dispatched on a Suspicious Person call to 6000 Challendon Lane, regarding three males walking in the alley.  Senior Corporal Ebsen located the suspects as described by the caller in the alley and detained them. The males appeared to have several large items stuffed into their pants and pockets.  To ensure that the suspects were not concealing weapons, the items were removed, and the officers found television remote controls, game boy games and system components, electrical power cords and other items. When asked what was going on, the males did not respond. 

Additional officers arrived, and believing a burglary may of occurred, started walking the alley from the direction the males were seen coming from. The officers found that a rear gate of a residence had been torn from its hinges. Checking the residence, the officers found three flat screen televisions, a shotgun and other items lying in the backyard. The residence rear door was open from apparent physical force.  The officers were able to contact the homeowner. The complainant advised that she had left her home earlier, did not know the males, nor had she given them permission to enter her residence or remove property.  Released back to the complainant was $3,230 worth of stolen property. 

The suspects were taken to the Southwest Investigative Unit where one suspect gave a formal confession to Detective C. Ridley, #5321.  One arrestee was filed on as an Impact Offender due to his 6 prior felony convictions, 5 of which were Burglary of Habitation, and had an active parole violation warrant. A second arrestee had one prior Burglary of Habitation conviction. This is an example of exceptional police work and we are extremely proud of their diligence. The case they provided made for a very strong prosecution case and removed two career criminals from the street as well as a rookie burglar. 

This incident was documented under case number 258523-2014.

DNA Efforts by SOR Solve Cold Case

IMG_0965

Sex Offender Registration Squad with CAPERS Command Staff

On February 2005, the Texas Attorney General’s Office passed a new legislation requiring all convicted sex offenders since 1970 to submit a DNA sample to the state. But this retroactive law allowed many offenders to slip by because they had not had further contact with law enforcement. Recognizing that this hole in the system would allow sexual assault cold cases to remain unsolved, the Dallas Police Sex Offender Registration (SOR) Squad took initiative to have both their officers and the Sex Offender Apprehension Program (SOAP) detectives properly trained to obtain buccal swab from offenders  in order to submit to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

In the summer of 2013, SOAP conducted a city-wide DNA sweep to collect DNA samples from sex offenders who were not already listed in the CODIS DNA Database. Since then, DPD SOR and SOAP continues to screen all reporting sex offenders to keep the CODIS system updated.

On September 16, 2014, a DNA sample collected by the DPD SOR Squad matched an unknown DNA profile collected from a 2008 unsolved sexual assault case investigated by the Ft. Worth Police Department. This was the first CODIS match resulting from their collection efforts.

On October 27, 2014, as a result of their efforts, the Dallas Police Sex Offender Registration Squad was presented with a Certificate of Recognition from the Texas Department of Public Safety Crimes Laboratory Service for ensuring sex offender compliance and providing a vital role in the continued success of the Texas DPS program. The Dallas Police Department is the largest police department in the state working directly with the CODIS lab on sex offender DNA. The Dallas Police Sex Offender Registration Squad is the first SOR squad to be honored by CODIS for its collection efforts.
