Very neat show of support from the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. Eyes to the skies Wednesday morning to see the flyover (while practicing your proper distancing, and please don't gather in large groups to watch). 👇🛩

In a show of national solidarity, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will flyover Dallas/Fort Worth on Wednesday, May 6, starting at 11 a.m. This is part of multiple flyovers across the nation called America Strong — a collaborative salute to honor healthcare workers, first responders and other essential frontline workers as they combat COVID-19. Residents should observe the flyover from the safety of their home-quarantine and should refrain from traveling to see the flyover. Social distancing should be practiced at all times.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels were in North Texas last October at the #Bell Fort Worth #AllianceAirShow. The renowned Air Force Thunderbirds will fly at the 30th Anniversary of the Bell Fort Worth Alliance Air Show Oct. 17-18, 2020, at Fort Worth Alliance Airport. #AmericaStrong #InThisTogether

Acts of kindness go a long way during such a time of uncertainty. Thank you to the community members who are continuously showing their support. This handmaid wooden flag was given to our officer who regularly checks on a family in his beat. ‪Ofc. Taft is the proud recipient of this thoughtful gift. The compassion of our citizens and their show of appreciation is what helps us keep going! ‬

Show your 911 Communications Specialists some love as we kick off National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. They are the link that holds us together. Typically, they are the first point of contact, the true first responder, and the unseen hero.

Telecommunicators Week began in 1981 and quickly grew to become a national week of recognition. Congress officially designated the second week of each April as a time to remember the critical role that Communications Specialist play in keeping us all safe.

The average car burglar simply checks for unlocked car doors and spends less than a minute inside the vehicle.

Lock, Take, and Hide is an easy 3-step plan that drastically reduces your chances of becoming a victim:

1. Lock your car doors.
2. Take your valuables with you. (This includes cell phones, wallets/purses, GPS units, computers, weapons, and jewelry).
3. Or, at least, Hide those valuables so they aren’t in plain sight.

The Grand Prairie Police Department has been receiving a number of questions regarding travel during the Shelter-in-Place order. Please know that Grand Prairie Police Officers will not stop motorists solely on the basis of determining whether their commute is in violation of the COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place restriction. While enforcement is a final option, our current strategy is through education and voluntary compliance. Please stay at home. It is for your safety and the safety of the rest of our community.
