Dallas Hails Unprecedented Decade-Long Drop in Crime

January 13, 2014  | 

Dallas police officials are touting what they say is an unprecedented milestone: 10 consecutive years of crime reduction in the city, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Whether the changes are due to an improving economy, more officers on the street, added police technology, new policing strategies or changes in the definitions of certain crimes, officials and residents say one thing is certain: By nearly every measure, Dallas has seen a big crime turnaround over the past decade.

Chief David Brown credited a "team effort" involving hard work by officers, businesses and city officials, as well as private philanthropy.

"They are all part of this great achievement that Dallas has realized," he said Friday.
