Police Professionalization Exchange Program – Community Policing

Today, Dallas PD and the World Affairs Council of Dallas Fort Worth hosted a group of 15 law enforcement officials from Mexico for a Police Professionalization Exchange Program exploring Community Policing.  The group was accompanied by 2 interpreters, 2 representatives of The Police Foundation, and 1 representative of Global Ties U.S., the coordinating organization.  

During the presentation, Deputy Chief Rick Watson and Sergeant Robert Muñoz informed the Mexican officials of how Dallas PD implements community policing, specific initiatives, and how our philosophy affects all aspects of policing.

Sergeant Muñoz, who oversees the Office of Community Affairs, reached out to the Neighborhood Police Officers (NPOs) and invited them to speak during the presentation. Each speaker shared their perspective of what each unit does in efforts to bridge the gap between the community and police. The keyword during the presentation was “trust”, police agencies have to gain the communities trust in order to maintain a healthy and growing relationship. Dallas PD continues to actively listen to what the community wants and strives to provide them with excellent customer service. 

Dallas PD was beyond grateful to have been given the opportunity to share what we do within our department with other agencies that are willing to positively grow with their own communities.

Below you will find an in depth explanation of the Exchange Program: 

U.S.-Mexico Police Professionalization Exchange Program Background

Law enforcement in Mexico has the significant challenge of continuing to combat large criminal organizations that are ever evolving and constantly adapting with new technologies and seemingly unlimited resources.  Within this context, law enforcement officers are being asked to take on many responsibilities including tracking these organized criminal enterprises; building strong cases against them; serving as witnesses in court cases; engaging with the communities to root out criminal organizations and keep the public safe.  However, low salaries, poor working conditions, and limited opportunities for career advancement may hinder law enforcement agencies’ abilities to recruit and/or retain high quality, professional police forces and officers.

With these challenges in mind, Global Ties U.S. has developed the Police Professionalization Exchange Program (PPEP) to provide substantive and concrete opportunities for Mexican law enforcement professionals to begin to obtain some of the training they need to increase their leadership and tactical skills.  Our program is designed to do this through hands-on training, academic learning, and direct engagement with law enforcement personnel and agencies in the United States, which will provide practical skills and examples, as well as needed training and academic hours. 

Funded by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) through the U.S. Embassy in Mexico, the Police Professionalization Exchange Program is designed to provide training and professional development to 3,900 Mexican police officials from 2017-2019. The program will provide participants with direct exposure and access to U.S. police professionals and experts.  Participants will receive training and professional development via online lectures, training academies, professional study tours in the U.S. and participation in a Mexico-based training institute facilitated by U.S. law enforcement experts and professionals.

Right Care Is Making The Right Moves

The Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute, Dallas Fire-Rescue Department, Dallas Police Department, and Parkland Health & Hospital System joined forces more than six months ago and launched the Rapid Integrated Group Healthcare Team (RIGHT) Care pilot program.  This program is the first of its kind in Texas and it provides a comprehensive emergency response to calls involving behavioral health emergencies.

The RIGHT Care Program includes specially trained and equipped police officers, paramedics, and mental health professionals who respond as a team to safely and effectively manage patients experiencing behavioral emergencies.

Our pilot program is currently focused in one area of Dallas, the South Central Division, and the team has answered more than 1700 mental health calls.  Over 300 of those calls required an outreach and follow up to be made, and more than 130 of the calls resulted in citizens getting the treatment they need by being transported to a mental health care facility. 

Click to view slideshow.

A significant benefit of the RIGHT Care Program is that it free up manpower from answer these types calls and allow patrol officers to answer other calls for service.  The program also brings police, fire, and hospital personnel together in one effort to provide the best service to our community.

Kudos to the RIGHT Care Team for their hard work and dedication to this program.  Job Well Done!!!

The Department would also like to thank the W.W. Caruth Jr. Foundation at CFT for the grant and the DFW Metropolitan New Car Dealers Association for generously donating the response vehicle.

Summer 2018 Midnight Basketball Finale

 

On August 2, 2018, Sam Tasby Middle School looked like every other school across the metroplex. There where maintenance trucks and workers preparing the school building for the upcoming school year. However, upon entering the gym area you could hear the constant thumping of basketballs on the hard wood. On this hot August evening it just so happened that The Dallas Police Activities League (PAL) was holding its last night of the 2018 Midnight Basketball. The night was to end with the awarding of trophies and a feast of freshly fired chicken fingers and french fries. Oh, lets not forget a nice cake with midnight basketball 2018 written in cake frosting. It was quite obvious all of the kids who participated were happy eating cake with their trophies sitting on the table by that delicious looking cake.

Midnight Basketball may have come to and end this night for the summer of 2018 but Dallas PAL will continue to have activities throughout the school. If you would like more information please visit http://www.dallaspolice.net or the Dallas PAL Facebook page.  In the meanwhile, lets enjoy the upcoming fall season and school year and start dreaming of the upcoming 2019 midnight basketball season.

Auto Theft Prevention

Capture 4

Prevent Auto Theft and Burglary!!!

The Auto Burglary Theft Prevention Authority (ABTPA) and the Dallas Police Department recommends the following tips to prevent citizens from becoming victims of auto theft and break-ins while attending fitness locations.

  • Never leave your vehicle unattended with keys in the ignition.
  • Do Not Leave Extra Keys in the Vehicle.
  • Park in busy and well-lit areas
  • Do not leave valuables (GPS, GPS holder, cell phone, iPads, etc.) in view
  • Equip your vehicle with an alarm or other anti-theft devices
  • Never leave your vehicle registration or other personal documents in your vehicle.
  • Secure & lock your gym locker with a heavy-duty combination or padlock.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and report any strange activity to police and the fitness location.

A trend was identified where suspects would find car keys and credit cards in unlocked lockers and obtain access to the vehicles. On occasion the suspects would cut small, light steel locks to gain access. Make sure to use a heavy-duty lock.

Following these safety tips should help prevent you from becoming a victim of auto theft and/or break-ins.  But if you do become a victim of auto theft, report it immediately. Provide local authorities with the make/model/license plate and vehicle ID number (VIN). A good idea is to keep a photo of your vehicle with the license plate number on your smartphone so that you can show officers. This will help get your vehicle information into the National Database faster.

Upon entering the Moody Performance Hall officers, their family members and friends encountered  Moody’s serene decor, ambient lighting and wood floors, that instantly gave the impression that this is a special day and an inspiring atmosphere to celebrate this level of achievement. 

The ceremony began with the Dallas Police Department’s Honor Guard posting of colors, and the Dallas Police Choir singing the National Anthem.  As the audience settled back into their seats, it was that time of the ceremony to call each officer by name and present them their new badge and rank.  During the ceremony, there were ninety officers that were promoted from police officer to senior corporal, from Senior Corporal to Sergeant, and from Sargent to Lieutenant.  The audience, which was made up of family and colleagues, were delighted when small children loudly congratulated their parents from afar as they walked across the stage and received their badges from Chief Hall.  Hearing their tiny voices became one of the most memorable part of such a momentous occasion.

We congratulate all of our newly promoted officers and wish them the best of luck as they start the newest chapter in their careers.
