Public Safety Meeting: January 9, 2017

2016 was a challenging year for the City of Dallas.  Through the most trying times and adverse conditions, the police department, with the help and support of the community, was able to keep overall crime to only a slight increase of 2.14% compared to 2015, which was the lowest crime reduction since 1969.  The overall crime rate for 2016 was the 3rd lowest on record for the City of Dallas since 1969.
