Dallas Police Department Partners with Community to Reduce Crime (Community Assessment)

The Dallas Police Department’s Office of Community Affairs will implement a Crime Reduction Program called 10/70/20, which will target 5 Multi-family Complexes in the Southwest Patrol Division. The philosophy of 10/70/20 is that 10% of the people in the community are Non-Tolerant regarding crime and are involved in the prevention of crime, 70% are Tolerant, and not involved, and 20% are the Criminal Element who commit crimes. The goal of this program is to mobilize the 70% to an attitude of Non-Tolerance and to identify arrest or deter the 20% from engaging in criminal activity.

On Saturday, November 3, 2012, from 9:00am-4:00pm the Dallas Police Department’s Office of Community Affairs and the Southwest Patrol Division will begin by assessing the needs of three multi-family apartment complexes and two residential areas. The group will meet at Willow Grove Baptist Church, located at 1222 W. Kiest Blvd., Dallas, Texas, at 9:00am. At about 9:45am they will go out into the community to begin the door to door assessment of residents’ relationship with the Police Department and their crime concerns. A follow-up meeting will take place Tuesday, November 13, 2012 to discuss the results of the assessment.

For more information, please contact Dallas Police Community Affairs Representative Ben Hidalgo, at (214) 671-4045 or at (214) 470-8590.
