Crime statistics in the city are broken down into three categories - crimes against people, crimes against property, and crimes against society. For overall crime, District 12 has the least number of criminal incidents of any district in the city. You can find crime reports and information here: Crime Reports & Information
Here's an update on District 12 year to date numbers:
Crime against people is down (currently second lowest in the city - D13 is lowest). There have been 48 fewer victims year to date. One crime included is murder, which is up from 1 this time last year to 6. Five of the murders were at apartment complexes and tied to drugs. Please see article below about how D12 is addressing apartment crime.
Crime against property is up by a total of 11 incidents year to date (currently the second lowest in the city - D5 is lowest). Reductions include the crimes of residential burglary, business burglary, vandalism, identify theft, and individual robbery, all down significantly, but we've had increases in theft from a vehicle, theft of motor vehicle parts, and stolen cars. Please help by making sure your car doors are locked and all valuables are removed from your car every time you leave the vehicle unattended.
Crimes against society is up (we are lowest in the city). Drugs and weapons charges are the reason for the increase.
Dallas Police Department needs our help. Please make sure to report all crimes or suspicious incidents to 911, report crime online (see graphic below) or submit a tip or something suspicious that doesn't need an emergency response through the app iWatchDallas (can be done anonymously).
The North Central Police Station has recently increased its police staffing and shift schedules have changed. We have 8 Neighborhood Police Officers who are available to attend HOA meetings, come speak to congregations or civic groups, or participate in your neighborhood events. They have a strong focus on the apartments in our district. If you're not sure who your Neighborhood Police Officer is, contact Sgt. Ed Lujan at firstname.lastname@example.org
