Protect It. It’s Yours!

Burglary and Auto Theft Prevention Tips

The first thing you can do to help: LOCK YOUR DOOR, Don’t leave valuables or extra keys in your car – particularly not in plain sight! Don’t be the next car burglary victim!

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE RUNNING Please turn off the ignition and lock your door. A lot of offenses are taking place when people leave their vehicles running when they run in the store to pay for gas, to get a drink, to let the car warm up. Whenever you exit the vehicle please turn off and lock your door.

DON’T LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR.  That sounds like “common sense”, but drivers/passengers do leave items of value in plain view every day. If you leave valuable items visible in your car, your car is automatically a target.

If you must leave valuable items in your car while out and about, place items out of sight before reaching your destination or move them inconspicuously. This includes packages, backpacks, gym bags, GPS units, cell phones, and so forth. Someone may be watching when you put items under a seat or throw something over them. 

What Items are Most Commonly Stolen from Vehicles?

  • Backpacks, gym bags, briefcases, day-planners
  • Cash/coins, checkbooks, and credit/debit cards
  • Wallets and purses (even when hidden under a seat or in an unlocked glove compartment)
  • Laptop computers
  • Cell phones (and chargers)
  • Portable GPS navigation systems
  • Jewelry, keys, mail (identity theft)
  • tools

Anything of obvious value. LOCK! TAKE! HIDE!

If you can’t take them with you, at least lock the items in your glove compartment (if capable of locking) or your trunk (if you have one). Leave no trace. Don’t leave any “sign” that there might be valuables “out of sight” in your vehicle, such as docking stations or connector cables. Leave nothing in “plain sight” that might make your vehicle worth “investigating” by a thief; not even loose coins.

  • Try to park in busy, well-lighted areas.
  • Lock ALL your vehicle’s doors even if you plan to be gone for only a brief time.
  • Set any alarm or anti-theft device.

DPD officers cannot be everywhere, and we count on good people to be our “eyes and ears” and report suspicious activities as they are occurring. Do your part by taking preventive action and spreading the word. You can make a difference.

  • Report Suspicious activity If you see suspicious activity, report it to Dallas Police Department @ 911.
  • Don’t hesitate to call DPD to report ANY suspicious activities, persons, or vehicles.

Santa Cops

As in years past, the Dallas Police Department is gearing up for its annual Santa Cops Delivery Day.  Since 1984, the Dallas Police Department has provided assistance to members of the community by providing toys and food during the Christmas season.  In that year, officers created and developed a program known as Santa Cops.  The Santa Cops program was designed to assist members of the community who have been victims of crime and as a result of that act; they are unable to provide for their children during the holidays.  The Santa Cops program has assisted over 10,000 families throughout the years and has been a topic of annual news reports in the Dallas Morning News, The Police News, and local television station broadcasts.  A Santa Cops request form is completed by members of the department who have identified a family in need.  In recent years, we have also had several Health, Social, and Church organizations nominate families who have exhibited a need for help with Christmas for their children. 

In 2016, we teamed up with Kate’s Books, which we are very excited about!  Kate is an officer’s daughter who had the idea to include books with our toy deliveries.  This year’s goal is to collect and donate 5,000 new or gently used books to our less fortunate families.  The next step is the best part of the process; watching the children’s faces when the officers bring the toys to their home.  

This year, delivery day will be on Saturday, December 19, 2020.  Officers and their elves will begin delivering toys at 9:00 a.m.
