Officer of the Month – Senior Corporal Debra Webb

On September 18, 2018, Senior Corporal Debra Webb, #9576, was awarded September’s Officer of the Month by the Dallas Community Police Awards Committee.  A dinner was held in her honor at the A. C. Garrett Masonic Lodge located at 7119 E. Grand Avenue, Dallas, TX.

Senior Corporal Webb is a 10 year veteran of the Department and is currently assigned to the Media Relations Unit. Prior to Media Relations, Debra spent the remaining time of her career at the Central Patrol Division. 

Sergeant Warren Mitchell, who nominated Senior Corporal Webb, had this to say, “In the Media Relations Unit, Senior Corporal Debra Webb is often referred to as “Brains” for her brilliance in the area of communications and for her over all knowledge of the department.  From the moment she arrived at our office, she became a force to be reckoned with.  Having a degree in Communications from SMU, Debra took Media Relations to another level.”  Senior Corporal Webb has written speeches and newsletters, created, edited, and produced various videos, and responded to thousands of media request, just to name a few.

In her 10 years on the department, Senior Corporal Webb has received a Police Commendation, a Life Saving Award, two Certificates of Merit and over 25 various commendations and awards.  Most recently, On July 26, 2018, Debra was returning to the Media Relations office from an assignment and while wearing plainclothes and driving an unmarked vehicle, she observed a male running in the 1200 block of South Lamar Street clutching onto a female purse.  Based solely on instinct, she immediately turned her vehicle around and began pursuing the suspect.  As she chased the suspect, she yelled several times for the suspect to stop, but the suspect continued to take evasive action to elude detention.  In the end, the suspect was able to elude officers, but Debra was able to recover the victim’s purse and all of her personnel items.  

Although Senior Corporal Webb have numerous accomplishments during her tenure in Media Relations, the one she takes the most pride in is the video she created in memory of the five officers who lost their lives during the attack on July 7, 2016.   To create the video, Debra worked tireless interviewing approximately thirty (30) eyewitnesses who recounted pain staking details of that horrific day.  After reviewing hundreds of hours of recorded interviews, Debra was able to edit the many acts of heroism displayed that day and produced an hour long documentary without compromising the integrity of the criminal investigation.  Because of Debra’s dedication and hard work on this project, she along with an incredible team she worked with, were able to complete the documentary titling it, “#DallasStrong, One Year Later”.  This story was shared with the families of the fallen officers and subsequently the entire community. Through her tireless determinations to create the documentary, her only hope was that it would bring healing and closure to so many open wounds. 

This is just a few examples of Senior Corporal Webb’s skills and aspirations to go above and beyond the call of duty.  Thank you, Senior Corporal Debra Webb, for your extreme dedication, hard work and professionalism that has brought great credit to yourself and the Dallas Police Department.

 

 

 

Updated: Incident at Fox 4 Studio

Updated September 18, 2018 at 2:08 p.m.:

In the case involving Michael Chadwick Fry, the suspect who intentionally and repeatedly crashed into KDFW (Fox 4) news studio, 400 N. Griffin Street, on Wednesday, September 5, the Dallas Police Department is required to have a damage estimate from Fox 4 before the case can proceed. 

The length of time to hold Fry expired before Fox 4 was able to provide an estimate. Therefore, on Friday, September 14, the Dallas Sheriff’s Department released Fry. However, this case is still active and the Dallas Police Department is working with Fox 4 to obtain a damage estimate. Once the Dallas Police Department receives the damage estimate, the department will file the case with the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office and issue a warrant for Fry’s arrest.

Updated September 5, 2018 at 11:30 a.m.:

The suspect in this offense has been identified as Michael Chadwick Fry W/M/34. He has been charged with a second degree felony Criminal Mischief. 

Original Post:

On September 5, 2018 at about 6:00 a.m., Dallas Police officers responded to a call regarding a vehicle crash at 400 N. Griffin at the Fox 4 Studio. The call was quickly upgraded to a major disturbance call when it was determined that the suspect had intentionally crashed into the building multiple times. No one inside the building was injured. Officers arrived on scene shortly after the call came out and took the suspect into custody without incident. The officers who made contact with the suspect said he was talking and rambling, but did not make any sense. The suspect had strewn papers around the outside of the building with information about an officer involved shooting that happened in another city. It does not appear the suspect was directly targeting the media in this incident.

The suspect was transported to Parkland Hospital for evaluation. He has been released and transported to Lew Sterrett Jail. We expect the suspect to be charged for his involvement in the crash, but this incident remains under investigation and his charges have yet to be determined. His identity will not be released until he has been officially booked into the jail.

The Dallas Police Bomb Squad was called to the scene as well. The suspect had removed a bag from his vehicle after the crash and placed it near the building. The Bomb Squad was called to check the bag. The bag, the suspect vehicle, and the area surrounding the Fox 4 building were cleared and no suspicious devices were found. This offense will be documented on case number 197080-2018.
