Southwest Maps and Information


Southwest is one of seven Patrol divisions within the City of Dallas.  Not unlike the other divisions, Southwest is divided into five geographic areas.  These areas are refered to as Sectors.  The Sector name designations are 410,420,430,440 and 450.  To view the map with the locations of each Sector click here .

Each Sector is overseen by a Lieutenant of Police called a Geographic commander.  Additionally, each Sector have Sergeant of Police for each Watch covering all 24 hours of the day.  First Watch or "late nights" covers the hours between 11:00 pm and 8:00 am.  Second Watch or "primary days" covers the hours between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm  and Thrid Watch or "evenings" covers the hours between 3:00 pm and 12:00 am.  To view the Supervision for each geographic area click here.

Each  Sector  is  then  divided  into  smaller areas  called  Beats and are patrolled  by  Beat  Officers.  Each  Beat  then  contains  neighborhoods
which are  refered to as  Reporting Areas.  For Information  on the  Beat Officers  in  your area,  contact your  Sector  Supervisor.  To  see what Beats are in your Sector, click on the appropriate link below.

Reporting Areas are "neighborhoods" within each beat.  Reporting areas are used when officers need look at crime statistics in a particular area or  locate crime watches,  Neighborhood Associations  or Home Owners Associations.   Reporting areas are also  used by citizens to investigate what crimes  are  happening  where  they live.  To  find  out what your reporting area is, contact your Neighborhood Police officer.
