Together, we can make the Dallas Police Department America’s finest. Partner with Safer Dallas Better Dallas to help promote initiatives that make Dallas a safer city.
Safer Dallas Better Dallas works to accomplish its goals by raising money from Dallas foundations, businesses, and citizens to purchase equipment for our Dallas police officers and help fund the department’s much needed priority programs. Additionally, we help educate elected leaders on changes that will help reduce the crime rate in Dallas.
Current Programs and Initiatives
- Officer and Citizen Safety Initiative – The Dallas Police Department has asked Safer Dallas Better Dallas to raise funds for the Stinger, the best weapon yet against officer-involved shootings. The Stinger fires hard sponge pellets that can disarm or incapacitate a suspect from a safe distance, which makes it less likely that the officer will have to use a gun. The $250,000 goal will cover the purchase, ammunition, and officer training for 250 Stingers.
- iWatchDallas.net – iWatch Dallas is an interactive crime watch program and partnership with the Dallas Police Department that enables members of the community to anonymously report suspicious behaviors and activities in real time from their mobile phones.
- Community Engagement – Safer Dallas actively works with both the DPD and neighborhood groups to enhance the safety of our city. We help create programs that link neighborhoods and police to build trust in our community.
- SANE Initiatiave – Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners program that brings desperately needed sexual assault crisis services to the area of Dallas where they are needed most
