Dallas Police Department’s Northeast Division Seeks Video Surveillance Info.  

The Northeast Dallas Police Department Division is asking for help from residents, business owners and property management companies to create a resource for Officers and Detectives in the fight against crime. The Northeast Neighborhood Policing Unit asks owners of video surveillance cameras to volunteer their information and email basic questions about their video system’s capabilities.

If a crime happens, a Police Officer or Detective can check the database for businesses and homes in the vicinity of the crime with a surveillance system. If one is listed in the database, Police may contact that location and ask them to review their footage to see if anything was captured that may help with the case. Video surveillance systems are becoming more common as the technology improves and the purchase price becomes more affordable.

The Dallas Police Department has seen an increase in surveillance systems used by businesses, property management companies and residents and has successfully made arrests in cases where the surveillance video captured the suspect in the act. This resource will allow the Dallas Police to more quickly identify video camera locations where suspect information may have been captured. This is a voluntary program.

If interested email Officer Kelley at

Information to include in the email:

  • First and Last Name or Business Name
  • Complete Address
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Number of cameras
  • Length of memory for the recordings.

If you have any questions please call 214-670-7772.

#DallasStrong film tells stories of those involved in July 7 tragedy

The City of Dallas Public Information Office and the Dallas Police Department Media Relations Unit teamed up to create a documentary video about the July 7th tragedy. This video provided an outlet for several of the officers involved in the incident and the family members of the fallen to speak out and tell their stories. We know that we were only able to scratch the surface with these interviews since the case still has not gone to the grand jury, but the hope is that the video will provide some healing and closure to those who watch. The video was played for the family members of the fallen after the memorial service on July 7, 2017 and it is now being released to the public.

“You are missed You are loved. You will never be forgotten.” – Sgt. Gunter
