Dallas Police 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 3 Multi-family Complexes in the North 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, March 30, 2013, from 9:00am-4:00pm the Dallas Police Department’s Office of Community Affairs and North Central Patrol Division will begin by assessing the needs of 3 Multi-family Complexes. The group will meet at The Village on Timberglen Apartment Home, 3565 Timberglen Rd., Dallas, TX 75287 at 9:00am. Officers and volunteers will then go out into the Community to begin the door to door assessment of residents’ relationship with the Police Department and their crime concerns.
