In March, we experienced a rise in violent crime across the city. The Dallas Police Department quickly devised a plan to combat this issue with the creation of the Violent Crime Task Force. Officers have worked tirelessly over the past three months and their hard work has paid off.
Typically, we see a rise in crime during the summer months. In an effort to continue our fight against violent crime, the Dallas Police Department will launch Operation Next Gear. Operation Next Gear is a large scale crime reduction operation involving all of the task forces. These groups will target high crime areas in large concentration starting in July all the way through December.
Thank you for your continued support and participation in this ongoing effort to reduce crime in our city.
