Crime Watch

Call 9-1-1
CALL 9-1-1 to report a fire, get an ambulance or get help from the police. Always call 9-1-1 if you see any suspicious activity in the neighborhood! This is NOT bothering the police!
Or you can use the Dallas Police Department (DPD)'s new initiative, iWatch Dallas, to report crime tips and leads to police from the internet or your smart phone.

Volunteers in Patrol Crime Watch
Got a car and a pair of eyes? We need you! Become a VIP (Volunteers in Patrol)!
VIP is a group of Lakewood Trail Volunteers who patrol in their cars and report anything suspicious to 9-1-1 and 3-1-1. This is a non confrontational group and does not carry weapons. Members choose the time and days they can volunteer. Members must first complete a background check and VIP training through the Dallas Police Department in order to participate. A VIP group is the number one thing a neighborhood can do to help control crime.

If you are interested in joining or for more information, please contact us.
