International Women’s Day is observed annually on March 8 and celebrates the global “social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women,” according to the International Women’s Day website. The day also calls for action to advance gender equality. At the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department, we wanted to take a few minutes to celebrate International Women’s Day and recognize some of the talented women that work here.

The Dallas Sheriff's Inmate Services Division sent in the following information on the women that work in that section on a daily basis and wanted us to share how PROUD they are to have them as part of their team!

While buying and selling on Craigslist or other similar sites may be convenient, it comes with its caveats. Sometimes criminals and fraudsters troll the site looking for victims. Buyers and sellers have been known to meet interested parties in person and proceed to rob and even murder them.

Although this isn’t the norm, it’s certainly something to be aware of. Just like when meeting any stranger. The Dallas County Sheriff's Department advises safety first. Don’t make any assumptions. Stay safe when buying or selling online by following these tips.

1. Always meet in a public place - Most police departments will be happy to accommodate you, and they are open 24/7.

2. Tell someone - Tell a trusted friend or family member what you’re doing and have another trusted friend or family member accompany you to the transaction.

3. Never meet at home - Find a neutral site to meet – never at your or someone else’s home.

4. Always meet during the day - Never conduct your transactions at night.

5. If it’s a high-priced transaction, do it at a bank - The higher the price of the item involved, the higher the risk of the transaction. Conduct these transactions at a banking facility so a banking professional can confirm the funds have been delivered successfully.

6. Don’t pay in cash - Do not accept cash and do not offer to pay in cash. Use a cashier’s check instead and make it a non-negotiable term of the transaction.

7. Disable caller ID - Disable caller ID when calling the buyer or seller on the phone. Most cell phone and landline carriers offer this by dialing *67 before making the outgoing call.

8. Don’t use your personal email - Use an anonymous email address to communicate with the buyer or seller.

9. Keep your cell phone close - Have a cell phone in your hand during the entire transaction and be ready to call 911 at the first sign of trouble.

10. Don’t reveal personal information - Remember this is a business transaction, so never reveal Social Security numbers, home or business addresses or banking information.

In the coming weeks, students will be going on spring break heading to beaches and other vacation destinations. Empty homes and apartments can be easy targets for criminals so the Dallas Sheriff's Department has a few tips for preventing property crimes.

• Make sure locks are in good working order and lock all doors and windows.
• Consider installing timers on interior lights and install exterior motion lights.
• Close bedroom drapes or blinds.
• Write down serial numbers of valuables (TVs, laptops, gaming consoles, etc) and take photographs in case items are stolen.
• Don't advertise assets. Hide laptop computers and other small electronic items
• Remove valuable technology from apartments or residences; take items with you if possible.
• Stop mail and newspaper deliveries.
• Ask a trusted friend or neighbor to check on the residence while you are away.
• Don't tip off criminals on the web; refrain from posting your spring break plans on social media.
• Consider purchasing a home alarm system, and post highly visible warning stickers and signs indicating one is in place.

Some things to remember on your drive home today. It's going to be a little rough so take your time and be careful. Remember: It takes longer to slow down and stop on icy roads.

We spoke to some of deputies working out there in this winter weather and they strongly suggested to let everyone know to please slow down. Roads can ice up quickly and become very slippery causing accidents. #EndTheStreakTx of roadway fatalities. #GetHomeSafe

Valentine's Day is around the corner and so we decided to give some tips on how to recognize a Romance Scam.

For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. Speed also affects safety even when driving at the speed limit but too fast for road conditions, such as during bad weather, when a road is under repair, or in an area at night that isn’t well lit.

Speeding and aggressive driving endangers not only the life of the speeder, but all of the people on the road around them, including law enforcement officers. Stop Speeding Before it Stops You.

As we get into the summer months, protect your car and your catalytic converter. The Texas Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority has declared the month of July as “Watch Your Car” month. In addition to car theft numbers going up during the summer, we are now seeing a big increase in catalytic converter thefts. Stealing a catalytic converter only takes a couple of minutes and usually is done with a cordless reciprocating saw or a wrench. Thieves are sliding under cars and trucks and brazenly sawing off converters by the thousands. A person may not be able to tell their catalytic converter was stolen by looking at their car, but they will know as soon as they start the engine. When a catalytic converter has been removed, the vehicle will make a loud roaring sound that will get louder as the gas pedal is pushed. The main reason that catalytic converters are stolen is because they're valuable to scrap metal dealers. They contain precious metals, including rhodium, platinum, and palladium. All cars made after 1974 are required to have catalytic converters. Some are more appealing to thieves than others. Trucks and SUVs are common targets of catalytic converter theft because they are raised off the ground. This makes it easier to climb under and saw through the metal. However, every vehicle on the road is susceptible to a stolen catalytic converter. If your catalytic converter is stolen, you should immediately contact the police, then your insurance provider. Your insurance may cover the replacement costs, but you'll still be on the hook for your deductible.
@Dallas_Sheriff North Texas Auto Theft Task Force gives us 6 ways to prevent catalytic converter thefts. @SheriffMBrown14 July is "Watch Your Car" month from the Motor Vehicle Crime Prevention Authority. #Protectyourcar #MVCPA #CatalyticConverterThefts #NTATTF
