DPD Loses a Longtime Volunteer and Supporter

A great friend and longtime volunteer for the Dallas Police Department, Mr. Doug Woodham passed away at home on Saturday, January 17, 2015; he was 79.


Doug was actively involved in several DPD volunteer programs throughout his many years of service including  Crime Watch groups, Citizens Helping in Parking Solutions (CHIPS), Volunteers in Patrol (VIP), Crime Watch Executive Board (CWEB) and his latest program, the Dallas Junior Police Academy (JPA).

While no one can remember the exact day when Doug started volunteering for the Dallas Police Department, he has been working with DPD longer than anyone can remember.  Doug was a long time resident of Old Lake Highlands in the Northeast Patrol Division where he devoted countless hours to his community through his volunteer efforts with the Dallas Police Department.

He will be greatly missed.
