Former Dallas Cowboy Charles Haley Teams Up With Dallas Police Reading To Kids

In case you missed it, this is another wonderful example of using community engagement to improve relationships between police officers and (young) citizens. We are proud to partner with Charles Haley's group, Tackle Tomorrow, which provides resources and support to students across Dallas who struggle to read and write.

Safer Dallas, Better Dallas | We're in this fight together

Tip: Keep a note of the make, model, year, license plate and VIN handy in case your vehicle is stolen. Once an officer takes a stolen vehicle report, that information is placed on a national crime database. If the license plate is checked by law enforcement anywhere in the US, its status as stolen is returned to officers. Without the license plate or VIN, it is much harder to instantly identify a vehicle as stolen. https://buff.ly/3ujXbxl #dallas #backtheblue #dallaspolicedepartment #supportpolice #safecommunities #communityinvest #saferdallas #safercity #safercommunities

General information

Founders: Chariman Emeritus: Jack Hammack Chairman of the Board: Charles T. Terrell Jack Hammack and Charles T. Terrell just planned to meet with Dallas area leaders to share ideas on crime and public safety. Their goal was to identify the root causes as to why, according to 2004 statistics, Dallas was ranked first in crime in cities with over one million in population. Then, Hammack and Terrell pledged to seek the solutions and funding necessary to reverse those numbers so that Dallas would become the safest city in America within the next ten years. One hundred and fifty meetings (and a lot of homework) later, Safer Dallas Better Dallas was formed as a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization. Safer Dallas Better Dallas (SDBD) exists for one reason: to make Dallas safer for all of our citizens and not just those who can afford private police forces.
