An Interview With Chief Hall – A Plan In Action

On Wednesday, January 22, 2019, Chief Hall participated in an interview with NBC to explain her Crime Reduction Plan. She made it clear that more police presence is key in high-crime areas to help deter crime. Officers will also focus on known offenders in an effort to reduce criminal activity from repeat offenders.

The use of technology will also be expanded. It will assist to further enhance the surveillance over these areas. Hall said. “As we are able to leverage our technology and put cameras all around this city, that is going to help us be able to see that criminal element. And no criminal wants to be caught on camera.”

Chief Hall emphasized that one of the best ways to fight crime in neighborhoods is for citizens to give us information so that we are aware of what is occurring. The citizens know where crime is happening. They know who the offenders are or have information that may help us identify them. If criminal activity goes unreported, we can’t achieve our goal.

Hall said residents must play a part in reducing crime by speaking up. In an effort to ease the process of reporting crime, the Dallas Police Department is promoting the following services:

DORS, Dallas Online Reporting System, is a way for citizens to make police reports for certain offenses from any online device through This aids in keeping officers on the street to respond to calls and makes it easier for citizens to file reports.

iWatchDallas, gives citizens a way to give tips or report suspicious activity from any online device at any time. Download the app to your device or go to You can choose to remain anonymous, submit GPS locations, photos and/or video with the push of a button.

If you have an emergency, call 9-1-1. Text to 9-1-1 is also available in the City of Dallas if you can’t talk.

Crime prevention is everybody’s business.

1st Annual 2017 City Wide Apartment Owners and Managers Meeting

The Dallas Police Department was proud to host the first annual City Wide Apartment Owners and Managers Meeting on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at Fair Park. The meeting allowed the city’s apartment owners and managers to speak with representatives from the Dallas Police Department, Dallas Fire Department, Dallas Code Enforcement, City attorneys, and the City of Dallas RISK program. 

The Nuisance RISK Property Team works with apartment owners and managers to combat public nuisances. The program is designed to eliminate criminal nuisances by compelling uncooperative property owners to assist in the abatement of these nuisances. Forging a vested partnership with property owners is critical in making every community safe. The ultimate goal of the Nuisance RISK Property Team is to eliminate criminal nuisances and to revitalize neighborhoods that are safer and cleaner places to live, work, and visit. 

We would like to thank all of the apartment owners and managers who took the time to attend today’s event. Keeping our community safe is a shared responsibility and we couldn’t do it without you!
