Last week, my car was broken into in my alley driveway. How does the Frisco Police communicate that there is an apparant high density of criminal activity in a given area? I am not talking about something buried in the last page of the newspaper, either. Does the Department make an overt attempt to canvass a neighborhood with fliers to tell people what is going on? Does the department increase patrols? Does the department work with the Crime Watch organization that is formed in the neighborhood or the HOA? Has the departmnet identified The Trails situation?

Upon completion of each shift, supervisors provide an email department wide detailing the calls for service responded to during their tour of duty. This provides immediate information to other officers and supervisors regarding just the type of activity you are speaking about. This also allows for directed patrol efforts in/at identified problem locations. While we do not deliver flyers regarding crime activity, email notification is sent out three times a week by one of our citizen volunteers to all Crime Watch Block Captains detailing occurrences. This information allows for communities to disseminate the information amongst friends and neighbors, and has quite a wide audience. This information is provided to all police supervisors as well. We currently have very active crime watch groups across the entire city, and often use our Citizens on Patrol (COPS) to monitor problem locations as well. I will ask Community Services Officer Robert Monts to notify the COPS coordinator to get The Trails added on their list, and will ensure patrol officers working that area are also aware.

Please contact me directly at 972-335-5603 x103 with any additional questions.

The very best way to get this and other valuable information is through your streetís block captain. If you will provide me with your address in a separate message, I will have Community Services Officer Robert Monts identify who this is. If your street does not have one, we can certainly assist in getting this information to you through another outlet, such as an adjacent streetís block captain. If your neighborhood does not have an active or strong Neighborhood Watch group, Officer Monts can facilitate getting one started/rejuvenated.
