Crime in Dallas has fallen, at a steady rate, for several years. Part of the credit goes to the hard work of the men and women of the Dallas Police department, especially those assigned to patrol duties. Equally important in the fight against crime are the citizens of Dallas.

The Neighborhood Policing Team of the Central Patrol Division is responsible for interacting directly with the public, with the goal of fostering trust, cooperation and communication between the community and the department. Officers assigned to the team attend crime watch meetings, teach classes for Volunteers in Patrol, coordinate etching of valuables, and a host of other programs. Officers volunteer to serve in this team, and are interviewed and selected based on their abilities and qualities that relate to the duties required of team members. The officers of the Neighborhood Policing Team want to be involved in this program, want to work directly with the community, and are excited about their involvement.
