Police in Dallas are anticipating being able to report a 10 percent crime reduction for the Texas city by the end of the year.
WiredPRNews.com — As reported by the Dallas Morning News, officials credit the drop with more effective practices for fighting crime and an increase in the number of Dallas police officers patrolling the streets.
Dallas Police Chief, David Kunkle, was quoted in the news report as stating “I think we’re in a place where the city is going to become safer… You see an investment in neighborhoods and more community development. You see a commitment from council to fund extra officers. I’m very optimistic.”
The lowered numbers would represent the largest reduction in over a decade. Statistics for November have reportedly shown substantial decreases in crime rate percentages for property crime, violent crime, and practically every other category.
