WHO IS JHCW? Our efforts are all to reduce crime, raise safety and property values. When we bought our home over a decade ago, there was a lot of vandalism, car theft, etc, right on our block where I had just paid shy of 200k and was freaking out about the crime. We are here to raise awareness of the crime element in our area and annihilate it!

We throw money at the problem by raising cash to fund off duty patrolling of senior police officers. This is our primary weapon. These officers know our area, can and do, make arrests during their shifts. These added shifts are vital to create the police presence and reduce the crime.

Next, we challenge folks to take their dogs and walk their streets and alleys. Report any suspicious activities to the police. This is something you can do every day on your own schedule.

We are still in need of VIPs, for our voluntary civilian patrols. Please email if interested.

We can all be a part of crime reduction by paying attention to our surroundings and reporting on anything or anyone that appears suspicious. Get to know your neighbors. Stop and ask questions or take a picture of anyone who appears suspicious.

Make this year one of reduced crime by remaining vigilant of your surroundings, reporting any unusual or suspicious activities to 911 (asking for the expediter unit) and by contributing to the watch. Hide & secure valuables and partner with your neighbors to look out for each other when at work or on vacation. If you can work from home or are in a position to vary your schedule, do so as much as you can and coordinate with a neighbor if possible. Thieves typically scout for the easiest target. A neighborhood where folks are watching and reporting on something strange next door or across the street makes it more of a challenge.

We rely on neighborhood contributions to pay for these patrols, which involves an hourly rate for the patrol car and the officer scheduled. If you are not yet a member, please consider supporting us today.

There are several wonderful classes currently being held by the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department, from youth to senior classes, and from fitness to dog training. Heidi Hulin, is the Program Coordinator. , Classes are held at Exall Park & Recreation Center. For more info: heidi.hulin@dallascityhall.com

Where ever this particular day has placed you, I hope it brings you to a place of much joy, and a time of living slower, celebrating the outdoors, your neighbors and loving where you live.
