Crime Watch February 2017 

December Crime Watch Report

Hello Town Creek Residents!  As you will notice in the report below, we continue to have more criminal activity in the area than normal.  Call, Call, Call.  More crime can be prevented or stopped in its tracks if our officers received more timely calls regarding suspicious activity.  The Dallas Police have realized that timely calls and information are a great way to prevent or intervene in crime, and they have subsequently raised the priority of such calls in Dallas.  We have always felt that way about our Crime Watch patrol.  The officers cannot do much unless they are contacted.

I know that many people are concerned about “bothering” the police or Crime Watch with such calls, however, they will be the first to tell you to call them and let them sort it out.  Our Crime Watch patrol officers welcome the calls and information.  On occasion, a call regarding a suspicious person can assist in the arrest of someone connected with a nearby crime.

If you need assistance, want to report a suspicious person, or report a crime, our Crime Watch officers should be the first call since they are in the neighborhood, and your second call should be 911.  If a Crime Watch officer is not on duty, please leave a message and dial 911.  The next officer on duty will call you, and if one is on duty, he will welcome the backup dispatched by 911.
