Dallas Police Department Partners with Community to Reduce Crime
The Dallas Police Department’s Office of Community Affairs will implement a Crime Reduction Program called 10/70/20, which will target three multi-family complexes in the South Central 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, February 16, 2013, from 9:00am-4:00pm, the Dallas Police Department’s Office of Community Affairs and South Central Patrol Division will begin assessing the needs of three multi-family complexes and one residential area. The group will meet from 9:00am until 9:45am at Rosemont of Oak Hollow Apartments, located at 3015 E. Ledbetter Road, Dallas, Texas 75216. The group will go out into the community to begin the door to door assessment of residents’ relationships with the Police Department and their crime concerns.
