Dallas lands 5th in annual ranking of best-performing cities

Two Texas cities took top spots in an annual survey of the best-performing cities in the U.S. with Dallas taking 5th place, according to a new Milken Institute report. The annual analysis of 200 large metros takes into account job growth, wage and salary growth, and high-tech GDP growth among other factors. The report cites higher competition for talent among firms and rising housing costs in coastal regions as a factor in rising prosperity for inland cities, but notes that those very same inland cities are beginning to catch a glimpse of the hurdles faced on the coasts.

Toyota CEO Lentz: Move to Dallas Region Opened Doors for Greater Community Involvement

For the second-straight year, a record crowd of more than 1,500 business leaders attended the Dallas Regional Chamber’s Annual Meeting: The Future of Mobility. This year, Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota Motor North America provided keynote remarks and discussed the rationale behind Toyota’s move to Plano, the region’s hospitality, and the future of transportation.

The event was held Friday, Jan. 18, at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas.

Community Involvement

“Southern California has a big handicap, in terms of commute times,” Lentz said to The Dallas Morning News Publisher Grant Moise, who interviewed Lentz at the event. “One of the reasons that we knew we had to get out of California was just that. The balance between work and personal life was really difficult there. As a result of that, it was not uncommon for one of our team members to have to drive to 2.5 hours each way.

“You can imagine leaving at 5 o’clock in the morning, getting home at 8:30 at night. It made it really difficult to do things in your community because there is only so much time you spend with your family. And as a result of that, I think… It was more difficult to really have a robust community involvement.”

In turn, Lentz said, Toyota – which is known for its community outreach – now has representatives on 26 different boards today.

Welcoming Community

During the conversation, Moise asked Lentz of his impressions the Dallas Region.

“So my wife and I’ve been here four years,” Lentz said. “We were part of we call the pioneers. I can tell you two things really stand out. Number one is, it’s great to see four seasons: It’s hot. It’s hotter. It’s ‘God, it’s hot out here.’ And it’s Christmas,” he joked.

Kidding aside, Lentz said the people of the Dallas Region have been exceptionally welcoming to Toyota employees.

“I lived in a lot of parts of the country, and I think Dallas is this unique blend of the hospitality of the South, of that pioneer spirit of the West, and the values that I remember growing up as a child in the Midwest,” he said. “People (here) are very genuine. They’re very friendly. They’re very open, and I think, especially (considering) moving your 2,800 people – most of whom had never relocated their lives…  Dallas has been so open to us. Such a warming environment, from kids in schools, and churches. It’s been a pleasure to move here. It’s been great.”

Lentz said his employees who have younger children tell him that they love the Dallas Region because they can ride their bikes in the neighborhood.

“When I grew up, that’s what I did all day long,” he said. “There are a lot of places in America where you can’t do that anymore.”

The Future of Mobility

When speaking of the notion of autonomous car-sharing, Lentz said he doesn’t think it will become as prevalent as many anticipate.

“Just because you can share something, doesn’t mean you’re going to,” he said. “I could share my toothbrush because I only use it two percent of the time, but is unlikely that I’m going to do that.”

Moise – a Toyota Supra owner during his high school years – used the occasion to ask about the relaunch of the car, 33 years after its retirement. (Toyota produced the Supra between 1978 and 1986.)

“Toward the end of its life, we couldn’t give those cars away,” Lentz joked. “Until it appeared in the “The Fast and the Furious” (movie). And it just exploded. I mean today, if you want to buy an (original) Supra, it’s $50,000 to $100,000. Now, the good news is, this brand-new car that comes to market in June is only $49,950. And it’s going to be a spectacular car.”

“We, North America, developed a concept car a number of years ago that we call the FT-1,” he said. “It was how we envisioned the next-generation Supra. The concept was originally built on a Tundra (pickup) platform. But it’s going to be an exciting car – turbo-charged, 335-horsepower – built in-conjunction with BMW.”

Incoming Leadership

Also speaking at the meeting was Chris Nielsen, Executive Vice President of Product Support/Chief Quality Officer at Toyota Motor North America. Nielsen is the 2019 Chair of the Dallas Regional Chamber Board of Directors.

“In beginning this new role, I thought, ‘Is there something that can be our defining issue – something we can look back on in 10 or 20 years from now with a great sense of accomplishment?’ I think the defining issue for us is education,” he said.

Also Friday, it was announced that John Olajide, Founder and CEO of Axxess, was named the 2020 Chair-Elect of the DRC Board of Directors.

“Under Dale [Petroskey]’s leadership, the Dallas Regional Chamber has become the best chamber organization in the country, and I gain tremendous value through my engagement with the DRC,” Olajide said. “I am honored and humbled by the Board’s recognition of my contributions, and I look forward to supporting Chris’ leadership this year.”

2019 Annual Meeting Sponsors

Toyota Motor North America was the Presenting Sponsor of Annual Meeting. Platinum Sponsors included Axxess, Thomson Reuters, and Wells Fargo. Gold Sponsors were American Airlines, AT&T, and Hillwood Development Company LLC. Silver Sponsors included Frito-Lay North America, FWD>DFW, Jones Day, and Slalom Consulting. Bronze Sponsors were Amegy Bank of Texas, BKD LLP, Capital One Bank, DFW International Airport, Fidelity Investments, McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., Oncor, PwC, Stantec, Texas Health Aetna, and The University of Texas at Arlington.

A Message From Our CEO: Connection Point Blog Launch

CP_Header

Welcome to the Dallas Regional Chamber’s new blog, CONNECTION POINT, which will be an upgraded feature of our new website launching in a few weeks. We’ve named the blog Connection Point for a very simple reason: that’s what we do at the DRC. We connect people and companies — to ideas, opportunities, and to each other – so that businesses can find new ways to grow and thrive in our region. And what a region it is!

Each week, we’ll post stories and share news and insights about the companies and people that make up the Dallas Regional Chamber – beginning with our member companies. We’re proud to serve the needs of our member companies in all we do. Our members are the reason we exist in the first place, and we’re proud to be the voice of the business community and the champion of economic growth and prosperity for all in our region. You’ll also hear perspectives from our professional staff who bring expertise and insights to the strategic areas we work on every day. We’ll also have some fun along the way, too.

If you’ve ever heard me speak or give a presentation about the Dallas Region, you’ve probably heard me say this: “What a place to be, and what a time to be here.”

Since 2010, the Dallas Region has added one million new residents — growth fueled by the addition of more than 120 corporate headquarters, hundreds of local company expansions, and the creation of more than 750,000 new jobs. We are now a region of nearly 7.5 million people — and we’re projected to reach 10 million in the next 20 years.

As the DRC continues leading the region’s efforts to attract more companies and jobs here, we understand that with this growth comes the responsibility to make sure we have a workforce prepared for the jobs of tomorrow. So we work hard every day to strengthen our talent pipeline of homegrown students and workers by improving our education system.

Another important way to strengthen the workforce is by helping attract the best and brightest workers from across Texas, the United States, and the world, while retaining the talent already studying and working here. From 2011 to 2015, DFW attracted more than 243,000 new young workers between the ages of 18 and 34 with a bachelor’s degree or higher. Through our Say Yes to Dallas initiative, more highly skilled workers know about the great quality of life we enjoy here, and that DFW is a great place for career advancement, and a great place to live and raise a family.

Underlining all this is our tireless work in public policy, which impacts everything we do. Specifically, we focus on ways to strategically manage our region’s growth by working on issues such as our need for better roads, renewable water sources, and better infrastructure. As our region continues to expand and prosper, it’s important that we keep our pro-business, pro-growth environment healthy, strong, and open for all.

Working with our member companies and community partners, the Dallas Region has become a shining example to the country for business opportunities, corporate relocations, and job growth. The DRC plays a key role in keeping this momentum going, and we could not do any of this without your support.

My hope with our Connection Point blog is that it will provide another way to hear from you – our business and community leaders, about how we can better serve this region in the work we do. If you have any ideas to share or challenges you face, please reach out to me via email at CEO@DallasChamber.org. I’d love to hear from you – and I look forward to posting more on this blog in the months ahead.

Here’s to a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year. Looking forward to doing more good together in 2019.

All best wishes,

Dale_Signature

Buyers Beware of Counterfeit Cash

With the holiday season upon us, the Dallas Police Department wanted members of the community to be aware of counterfeit money being used at meeting/exchange locations to purchase items.  On December 17, 2018, at about 6:58 P.M., Dallas police officers responded to a call for service at 9456 Cabo San Lucas Drive. The victim called police regarding two suspects who used counterfeit currency to purchase an iPhone as a result of an OfferUp deal.  Because the neighborhood only had one exit point, the victim was able to detain the suspects as they were attempting to exit the neighborhood until the officers arrived.  

Patrol officers transported the suspects to the Financial Crimes Unit where they waved their Miranda rights and agreed to be interviewed.  During the interview, the two suspects admitted to paying the victim in counterfeit currency.  the suspects also admitted to committing three similar forgery offenses using OfferUp.  In those instances, the suspects used counterfeit currency to purchase a pair of Air Jordan tennis shoes, a Play Station 4 game system, and an additional iPhone.

Detectives analyzed the counterfeit currency the suspects provided the victim and additional currency that was located in the vehicle.  Both suspects were in possession of approximately $2,600 in counterfeit money (Motion Picture Money).

The suspects, Javaun Williams B/M/18 and Chanclyn Savage B/M/19, were transported to the Dallas County Jail and charged with Forgery of Government Document, F/3. 

As a reminder, when you intend to barter using an online app and/or mobile marketplace be sure to complete your transaction in a surveillance, well-lit, and monitored environment.  The Dallas Police Department has an Exchange Zones at its South Central Patrol Division located at 1999 E. Camp Wisdom Road.  Also, with the increased risk of counterfeit cash exchanging hands, community members may want to invest in a counterfeit marker to verify money.  Have a Happy and Safe Holiday Season.

Click to view slideshow.

On December 4, 2018, Senior Corporal Jabari Howard, #8427, was awarded December’s Officer of the Month by the Dallas Community Police Awards Committee. Senior Corporal Howard received the award during a banquet at the Park City Club located at 5956 Sherry Lane #1700, Dallas Texas.

Detective Howard is a 15-year veteran of the Department and is currently assigned to the Federal Task Force Office attached to the ATF. He began his career assigned to the Southwest Patrol Division before joining Operation Disruption. In 2009, he became a member of the Gang Unit before being assigned to the Federal Task Force where his knowledge allows him to be integral to dozens of federal investigations related to guns, drugs, and violence. After years of intensive investigation, Detective Howard was able to gather enough evidence to arrest a narcotics trafficker as well as seven other members of his criminal organization, who were utilizing one of the most violent gangs in the Dallas area as an intimidation tool.

Detective Howard has been the North Regional Director of the Texas Gang Investigators Association since 2014.  In that position, he coordinates on gang intelligence for his region and holds conferences which are attended by gang investigators and prosecutors at the local and federal levels.

By collaborating with local gyms, he has built relationships with the community by bringing at-risk neighborhood kids together to play basketball. This keeps the kids off the streets and allows them to experience positive mentors. By engaging the citizens, he has created an open dialogue within the community and an understanding that he is there to make their neighborhoods safer.

In a letter to the Meritorious Conduct Board, Sergeant Adrian Ballin, #7579 who nominated Senior Corporal Jabari Howard, stated, “This is the type of dedication that Detective Howard has always brought wherever he has worked. He is a thorough investigator who takes pride in doing good police work.” 

Thank you, Senior Corporal Jabari Howard, for your extreme dedication, hard work, and professionalism that has brought great credit to yourself and the Dallas Police Department.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday Safety Tips

The 2018 holiday season is upon us.  As we focus on family and great food, we want to give you a quick reminder to stay safe while you are out shopping for the holidays. The National Crime Prevention Council has great tips to help you shop safely while getting those great holiday bargains on Black Friday. Here are some savvy safety tips to remember:

Shopping in Stores

  • Do not buy more than you can carry.  Plan ahead by taking a friend with you or asking a store employee to help you carry your packages to the car.
  • Save all receipts.  Print and save all confirmations from your online purchases. Start a file folder to keep all receipts together and to help you verify credit card or bank statements as they come in.
  • Don’t flash the cash. Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise, such as onetime or multi-use disposable credit cards or money orders, including at online stores.
  • Wait until asked by a cashier before taking out your credit card or checkbook. An enterprising thief would love to shoulder surf to get your account information.
  • Deter pickpockets.  Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet inside a coat or front trouser pocket.
  • Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle. Check the back seat and around the car before getting in.
  • Tell a security guard or store employee if you see an unattended bag or package. The same applies if you are using mass transit.
  • Do not leave packages visible in your car. Lock them in the trunk, or if possible, take them directly home.

Shopping With Small Children

  • If you are shopping with children, make a plan in case you are separated from each other.
  • Select a central meeting place.
  • Teach them to know they can ask mall personnel or store security employees if they need help.
  • Have them memorize or keep your cell phone number handy.

Shopping Online

  • Before surfing the Internet, secure your personal computers by updating your security software. Everyone’s computer should have anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-spam software, as well as a good firewall installed.
  • Keep your personal information private and your password secure. Do not respond to requests to “verify” your password or credit card information unless you initiated the contact. Legitimate businesses will not contact you in this manner.
  • Beware of “bargains” from companies with whom you are unfamiliar — if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!
  • Use secure websites for purchases. Look for the icon of a locked padlock at the bottom of the screen or “https” in the URL address.
  • Shop with companies you know and trust. Check for background information if you plan to buy from a new or unfamiliar company.
  • To avoid purchasing counterfeit products, carefully examine the products you want to buy for signs of missing information (manufacturing information, warranty, product codes, etc.), broken or missing safety seals, different or incomplete packaging, and subtle or obvious changes to a company logo.

Citizens & Officers Save Lives From Burning Apartment

Today, officers of the Northeast Patrol Division were in the right place at the right time. The officers were investigating a call at 11760 Ferguson Road. During the investigation, Officers noticed smoke coming from a nearby apartment building. They quickly jumped into action and called for cover. The officers began knocking on doors to get everyone out of the apartment building which was starting to engulf in flames. They discovered that six residents including a baby, from two different apartments were trapped on the 3rd floor with no way out. The breezeway where you enter their apartments had become completely engulfed in flames.


Dallas Fire Rescue issued a statement:

Despite the excellent work of firefighters, the real heroes showed up prior to the arrival of Dallas Fire Rescue. Dallas Police Officers in the area, along with some of the residents of the complex, began running through the breezeway and knocking on doors to wake people up. At one point they noticed residents still trapped inside apartments on the third floor. Realizing the residents had no other means of escape the officers (and residents helping) grabbed mattresses from some of the apartment units to create a cushion on the ground for the trapped residents to jump onto. Six residents, including a baby who had to be caught, jumped to safety from the third floor.

Everyone was able to get out safely with the assistance of two citizens and the responding officers.

Sergeant Mike Mata said “This is a great example of citizens and officers coming together to save lives.”

Thanks to quick action of the citizens, Sergeant Mike Mata, Officer Muller, Officer Pease, Senior Corporal Simler, Officer Jordan, and Officer Oates six lives were saved today.

The Dallas Police Department’s Bait Car Program originally began in the Auto Theft Unit in 2003.  At that time, the program solely focused on Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle (UUMV) offenses.  In 2010, the Department began the use of an additional Bait Car Program that focused on Burglary of Motor Vehicle (BMV) offenses in an effort to combat an increase in theft offenses throughout the city.  In 2013, the Department merged the two operations to create the current Bait Car program we have in use today. The cars became so intelligent that the unit was moved from Auto Theft to Operational  Technology.  Since that time, the program has grown to a fleet of more than 25 vehicles with the hopes of expanding in the next few years.  Since the merging, there has been a total of 997 Activations and 1,160 arrests to date.  Of those activations and arrests, 848 were for BMV and Theft and 149 were for UUMV.  Those activations yielded 983 arrests for BMV and 177 for UUMV.  Nearly all of the persons arrested for these offenses showed a long criminal history and have aided detectives in solving many other investigations.  The Bait Car Program hopes to expand and grow those numbers as well as the functions of the platforms the Department is using moving forward.

The event started off with the Lake Highlands band and Officer Vaughn entertaining the crowd. District 10 Council Member Adam McGough told the students, “We’re all in this together”, he told them to make the right decisions because those decisions impact their community.

Chief Hall told the students, “… anything  that’s going to be great that comes out of Dallas, is going to come from you”. She spoke about being on board with Sgt. Quigg’s vision about the importance of mentoring, coaching and being involved with the youth and thanked him for his dedication.

Help Us Identify The Auto Theft Suspects

The surveillance videos capture two separate auto theft offenses in the act.  The first video was captured at 8088 Park Lane on October 17, 2018, at 12 p.m. This video shows two suspects pulling up in a stolen GMC pickup and park next to the target vehicle. You can clearly see the suspect test the alarm by pushing on the vehicle. The suspect then gains entry from the back by forcing the window up. One suspect begins to look around while the other goes into the vehicle from the open back window. The suspect inside appears to trigger the alarm and quickly opens the hood so the other suspect is able to disconnect the sounding alarm. The suspect inside then starts the vehicle without the owners key. The two suspects work together and take less than 8 minutes to complete the theft. If you recognize the suspects or have any information on this offense, please contact Detective Fregeau at 214-670-7717.

 

The second video shows another auto theft that took place at 195 W Davis Street on September 5, 2018, early in the morning.  The suspect vehicle is a red Ford Expedition with brown trim and a luggage rack. The suspect appears to be a Latin male in his early 20’s. One suspect is the lookout while the other suspect is taking 2017 GMC Silverado pickup just outside the camera view. This same vehicle is also captured on video taking a 2013 Cadillac Escalade few days before at 9101 N. Central Expressway. If you recognize this vehicle or any of the suspects please contact Auto Theft Detective Fregeau at  214-670-7717.
