Things Your Burglar Won’t Tell You

This great little piece came to us via the Buckner Terrace neighborhood:

1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.

2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.

DPD Loses a Longtime Volunteer and Supporter


Doug was such an inspiration to Crime Watch organizations across the city. He will be sorely missed.

Originally posted on DPD Beat:

A great friend and longtime volunteer for the Dallas Police Department, Mr. Doug Woodham passed away at home on Saturday, January 17, 2015; he was 79.


Doug was actively involved in several DPD volunteer programs throughout his many years of service including  Crime Watch groups, Citizens Helping in Parking Solutions (CHIPS), Volunteers in Patrol (VIP), Crime Watch Executive Board (CWEB) and his latest program, the Dallas Junior Police Academy (JPA).

While no one can remember the exact day when Doug started volunteering for the Dallas Police Department, he has been working with DPD longer than anyone can remember.  Doug was a long time resident of Old Lake Highlands in the Northeast Patrol Division where he devoted countless hours to his community through his volunteer efforts with the Dallas Police Department.

He will be greatly missed.

Labor Day is a No-Refusal Weekend!

The Dallas Police Department will conduct a No-Refusal DWI Initiative for the Labor Day weekend holiday beginning 6pm Friday, August 29th, 2014 and will conclude at 6am Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014.

Per the Texas Transportation Code: All persons arrested for DWI will first be offered the opportunity to voluntarily provide a breath and/or blood specimen. If they refuse both, the arresting officer will prepare a blood warrant and have it signed by the on-duty magistrate.

This can all be avoided if one chooses to have a designated driver or take a cab!

Please forward this information to your family and friends who plan on going out to take part in festivities over the holiday weekend.
