Freezing rain is occurring across much of North Texas now. Ice is building up on trees and powerlines and will result in sporadic power outages especially in the Ice Storm Warning area by tonight. While most shouldn't lose power, there are things you can do now to prepare in case you do!

One of the many unique creatures that the Duncanville Animal Control Officers deal with.

Great Job!

On Tuesday, ACO Harvey received a call about an injured vulture in a residents yard. Fortunately the vulture was captured by ACO Harvey and was taken to Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center by an amazing Tri-City Animal Shelter volunteer transporter.

Thank you to the incredible staff at Rogers. We are hoping for the best for this poor guy ❤️

🦅 Miscellaneous Facts

• Vultures do not suffer from food poisoning because they have very acidic stomach acids with a pH of almost zero; these acids actually stop the spread of disease
• A group of vultures is called a committee, venue or volt. In flight, a group of vultures is a kettle and when feeding at a carcass, the group is referred to as a wake
• To keep cool, vultures urinate on their legs and feet; this also kills bacteria or parasites and helps to keep the birds healthy.
• Vultures are not bad. They are actually really important. Vultures often get a terrible reputation. Like every living thing, they play an important role in keeping nature’s balance. They eat carcasses, which helps clean up nature, recycle nutrients as well as potentially minimize the spread of disease.

Post: Regional CARE Team Officially Launches Website to Help Duncanville Residents, Families Combat Crises
The Regional CARE Team website is live and ready to help residents during times of crisis. The website provides CARE Team Member contact information, an at-risk citizen registry, crime victim resources, and crises line resources.

This organization is a multi-disciplinary group that provides community behavioral health support and resources to residents and their families of DeSoto, Cedar Hill, Duncanville, Glenn Heights, and Lancaster.

Their purpose is to assist individuals experiencing behavioral health needs and their families/support systems to access, navigate, understand, and utilize appropriate community referral sources. They do not respond to 9-1-1, but instead provide prevention services before a crisis begins and follow up after a crisis to help in preventing another.
For more information about the Regional CARE Team and available resources, visit Regionalcareteam.org.

Just putting this out there as a long shot. My kids phone was stolen from the Rockwall shenanigans tonight. Please check with your children that were there. We would really like it back. I do have the exact location which is why I'm posting in this town. I prefer not to post your address for everyone to see.
My experience today at the Duncanville Police Department was nothing short of amazing! I appreciate everyone who welcomed me and took time to hear me out. This department is full of beautuful souls❤ My perspective of police have been changed because of each and every one of you. Officer Luna, my encounter with you meant so much to me. I appreciate your kind soul and positive energy. My prayers will always involve you and your amazing team. Thank you for giving me hope for our community again. All it takes is one! And for me, you were that one.
Is there an update on the bobcat that has been seen?
Can someone from the department please explain to me why yall haven't utilized you're page more than 3 times to try and help solve the murder case of Barbara Vincent Strain? The only times that anything on my Granny's case has been posted were shortly after she was murdered in 2013.
Thanks to the Officers who did a wellness check on my mother.
Okay why does it sound like a war zone outside? Very scary to hear all that noise .
This is one of my favorite Christmas memories the year Santa almost didn't come...from about 25 years ago!! We lived in a small rent house on Allen Avenue in Duncanville. Santa was bringing our kids so much stuff that we didn't have room to hide it. So, we rented a storage unit not far from our house. On Christmas Eve, around 10 p.m. Daddy Santa stayed with our children "Nestled all snug in their beds" while Momma Santa took the sleigh "suburban" over to the storage room to load up the gifts. Mind you, the office was closed, but no worries because I had a combination code. Well, I tried and tried but couldn't get combination to work and this was before we had a cellphone!! Panicked, I decided to drive to our local police station. They were so nice and understanding... they called the storage building owners and were able to get them to come let me in....and they even helped load the vehicle...the night the Duncanville Police saved our Christmas.
🎅🎄🤶👮‍♂️🎁👮‍♀️☃️
Merry Christmas Eve everyone!!
The other night I was sleeping at a Hill City Park in Duncanville Texas, when I was unagressively awakened by 2 officers who
truly cared more about my well being then crucifying me for sleeping at a closed park. I was so sleepy and nervous I can't remember their names, but I just want to say Duncanville Police, and to the gentlemen that approached me. You guys///////////////////////////////////////////
deserve to be acknowledged because no one ever recognizes the good cops that truly protect and serve.
Become a “Duncanville Christmas Elf” and send a gift to a senior that deserves some Christmas Cheer this year!

This month, many years ago, I made the difficult decision to end an abusive and toxic relationship. After making that decision, things go a lot harder before they go easier! Thanks for the many angels who helped me along the way. I share the following letter that I wrote to the Duncanville Police Departement today (sent to Chief Brown). Below is a slightly edited version for FaceBook.

***************************************************************

Chief Brown,
I am not sure how long you have been in your position or in the Duncanville Police Department, but I wanted to say thank you as a person whose life was impacted positively by the Duncanville Police Department many years ago. Please share this with your team, as you see appropriate, as I imagine some of your current officers were involved and even those who weren't should know that people like me appreciate the work that you do every single day.

In 2003, I graduated from college in Nashville, and soon after, moved to Dallas for my first real full-time job. I worked on the business side of healthcare as a consultant, installing software to help hospitals collect money from insurance companies more fully and more quickly. As I settled in, after purchasing my first home in Duncanville (211 Azalea Lane), I became involved in some community activities, getting to know my neighbors, and participating actively in a church. Through this last affiliation, I became involved with a young man who, to be kind, was a wolf in sheep's clothing. In 2004, we were married, and by 2006, I found myself in an emotionally abusive relationship [details removed for this post]. I was alone (no family in TX and finding that my mutual affiliations with my soon-to-be ex-husband exposed me to further risk, I had to be very careful and introverted).

In August of 2006, I formally filed for divorce, kicked him out if my home, and changed the locks. His manipulation and abuse escalated immediately and he developed an obsession with stalking and threatening me.

This person followed me around, broke into my home, waited for me at home or work (after I changed jobs and started working for a hospital in Grapevine), and started a smear campaign against me among my newfound friends and church-goers. It was scary. He threatened to kill me. His father, a retired police officer in another town "mentioned" to me ... [details removed for this post]. I lived in fear. I would come home from work to find booby-traps set up in my own home, the home I bought on my own before I ever met my nemesis. I would try to take a car trip out of town, to see family or friends, and I would find him at the very same gas station, hours away. I regularly slept on friend's couches, friend's parents' couches, or wherever I felt a little safer at night, especially when I would find my home disturbed or occupied when I arrived home from work.

It was a very tough time in many ways, as you can only imagine. As a person of faith with a strong conviction for living a life of purpose, I prayed to my Heavenly Father each day, that I was prepared to die if it was His will, but that if I had more to do in life to please protect me and allow me another day to live.

I filed for civil restraining orders more than once, but due to my still being married for almost a year (as he refused to sign the divorce decree and even sought spousal support!), I couldn't sell my home, rent it out or flee as quickly as I wished.

During that dark time of my life, I regularly called the Duncanville PD, to report him trying to break down my front door or trying to break in through the windows in the middle of the night. I also called because I could see his car parked somewhere nearby (I would have to drive loops through my neighborhood, as he was frequently parked somewhere else while lurking about on foot). I would call because I thought I heard something in the night! I literally lived in fear that he would surprise me at any time (which he frequently did [details removed for this post]). He was always quick to run off or drive away before the police showed up.

Always, the police came within minutes. The dispatchers knew my scared voice and never minimized my requests. The police officers were also so kind to me and treated me with such respect and true concern. I felt a little like I was on a ridiculous reality TV show, relying on law enforcement to help me manage my disastrous personal life. But, no one ever treated me like that. Each time, they called me by name, asked if I was okay, offered to (and frequently did) stick around in their cars out in front of my house for hours following a call. One night, after a particularly alarming visit by my ex, an officer told me that the police department had already put me on a daily check, where at the beginning and end of their shifts and at other times, officers would drive by my house, to deter any unwanted visitors and to make sure they didn't see anything suspicious. I felt like I had a whole family of bigger siblings (in unforms and with fi****ms) on the ready, looking out for me. God answered my prayers of safety and peace in a few ways, but especially through the angelic service of the Duncanville Police Department officers.

I can't imagine what it is like to be a police officer and to face the unknown each and every time you respond to a call, pull a car over, or stop to check on something that seems suspicious. But, I can imagine how different my life would be if I didn't feel the support and safety that the police could offer me at a time when, as a citizen, I relied on it as a lifeline! I am certain that without the constant and speedy response from the police department, the outcome could have been much, much worse for me.

Thank you so much for your service. Thank you for the nights you don't get to be home with your families because you are watching out for lonely scared 20-something women being hunted in the dark. Thank you for the personal risks you take to uphold the law. Thank you to those who lose their lives or their ability to support their families due to altercations with criminals. Thank you for the emotional trauma that you must endure so frequently. Thank you for your sincere concern for the real people who need you. Thank you from me.

(Fast forward, I met a wonderful single dad and when I became a mom to his son when we married in 2008, I enjoyed the blessings of surviving that dark period of my life in order to be a mother to a sweet boy. Eventually, we relocated to GA to be closer to grandparents, siblings, and cousins for the kids. I had 2 more kids, and now we are expecting one more in March! I still work in healthcare, helping hospitals keep their doors open. At this turbulent time in our country, I am so grateful for my life and my opportunities. Yes, I have some PTSD. But, I survived and try to make a difference in the world, too!)

Sincerely,
Connie Brown Fackrell
