#ICYMI: The DFW area is experiencing a high volume of catalytic converter thefts. Here's some #Tips that may help prevent you from being a victim:

• When possible, park in well-lit areas close to building entrances.
• Keep vehicles in a garage and keep the garage door shut.
• Set a vehicle's alarm to go off if it detects vibration.
• Some sources recommend using a high-temperature fluorescent orange paint, such as those sprayed on barbecue grills, on your catalytic converter, and then inscribing your vehicle identification number in the painted surface. This makes it traceable and, in theory at least, a reputable scrap metal dealer might decline to buy it.

Should you be a victim, contact your insurance carrier for a possible claim if you have full coverage insurance. #SeeSomethingSaySomething

#CrimeTip: Regarding gas pump and ATM skimmers, the safest bet is to simply not use any card at the gas pump, period. Instead, pay inside the gas station, ideally one with a chip reader at the terminal. If you're going to pay at the pump, however, at least consider using a credit card instead of a debit card. For ATMS, use those located inside secure areas.

The picture of the gray wires comes from a gas pump in The Colony. These skimmer devices can be bought online and some (the NFC device pictured) can be used with Bluetooth technology, with the scammer nearby in a vehicle. These skimmers can be placed on ATM machines and gas pumps. Inspect the device you are using and check for suspicious items!

A few recent #blotter items:

• Officers were dispatched to a local restaurant in reference to a possible intoxicated person. Officers observed the suspect vehicle traveling northbound in the 3700 block of Main Street. An attempt to stop the suspect vehicle was called off due to reckless driving displayed by the driver. The suspect vehicle also struck a parked vehicle and left the scene. The suspect's address was obtained and he was arrested at his residence. This case is under investigation.

• Officers responded to a traffic complaint where the reporting party advised that another vehicle had bumped his vehicle on the highway and was now following him. The reporting party pulled into a parking lot and the suspect vehicle continued to follow him. The suspect vehicle was stopped in the parking lot. The suspect cursed at officers and would not stop. An officer positioned his patrol vehicle directly behind the vehicle to keep him from fleeing. The suspect reversed into the patrol vehicle’s push bumper several times. Officers broke out the vehicle’s window and the suspect was removed from the vehicle. The suspect was taken into custody and involuntary committed to the hospital, due to officers believing him to be suffering a mental health episode.

• During the course of a routine traffic stop, a driver was observed trying to conceal a prescription pill bottle, which contained 11.8 grams of methamphetamine and 1.1 grams of “black tar” heroin. Multiple packages belonging to different individuals residing in the city, as well as identifying information of several individuals, were also located during the search of the vehicle. This case is under investigation.

• Officers were dispatched to a report of shots fired. The incident started when a resident had his phone and wallet stolen. He tracked his phone to the area of North Colony and Main Street. When the victim approached the suspects, they shot at him with a handgun. Officers set up a perimeter and were able to arrest the suspects within blocks of the incident. A handgun was recovered from one of the suspects. This case is under investigation.

#DYK: April is Sexual Assault Prevention Month. At present, sexual assaults are the most prevalent crimes in the United States, yet also the most underreported. Over the last two decades, much work has been dedicated to change the landscape of sexual assault and to empower victims of this type of crime. Here's some alarming Sexual Violence statistics:

• One of the most shocking facts about sexual assault is that approximately only 5% of sexual assault reports filed have been proven false.
• 82% of all juvenile sexual assault victims are female.
• 90% of adult rape victims are female.
• Adolescents aged 14‐17 were by far the most likely to be sexually victimized; nearly one in six (16.3%) was sexually victimized in the past year.

The stigma around sexual assaults needs to be lifted. This will encourage victims to come forward and prosecute attackers and also allow authorities to provide victims with the assistance and help they need in order to heal.

A few recent #Blotter items:

• An elementary school student crashed his bicycle in the Police Department parking lot and was transported to the emergency room for a minor head injury. Officers noticed the bike was damaged and took it to the PD bike mechanic for repair. The bike and a brand new helmet was delivered to his house the following day.

• Officers received reports of a disturbance at a residential location involving a teen male yelling in the front yard and brandishing a handgun. Officers responded and took the unarmed juvenile into custody. A 17-year-old male was seen throwing a handgun into the front bushes. The investigation concluded that the 15-year-old male and his 17-year-old brother were in a physical fight and the firearm was involved. The 17-year-old admitted that the handgun was his and that he purchased it from a friend. However, the handgun was reported stolen through a neighboring agency and was seized. The 17-year-old was taken into custody for tampering with evidence and evading. The 15-year-old was charged with assault.

• Officers responded to a local retailer after loss prevention called to report two individuals inside the store had concealed air pistols. Officers arrived and the suspects fled on foot. An Officer pursued the suspect through the parking lot. One of the suspect fled across the nearby railroad tracks and later scaled the wall into an adjacent residential neighborhood in Plano. Officers and the Drone Team responded to the area. The suspect was located behind a residence and taken into custody for theft and evading. The investigation is ongoing.

• Officers were dispatched to the parking lot of a business after receiving a report of a possible vehicle theft. The reporting party called and reported that he believed he had just witnessed individuals in a white Escalade steal a white Chevy Silverado. Officers responded to the area searching for the vehicles. Officers later learned that the white Chevy truck was also stolen. While officers were in the area, dispatch receive a second report of a stolen vehicle from the parking of a different business. During the investigation, officers reviewed the video surveillance at the first location and were able to get a vehicle tag from the vehicle driven by the suspects. It was later determined to be the same vehicle taken from the parking lot of the second business. The video surveillance also showed multiple vehicles that were clearly involved, including the Escalade and a Toyota Tundra truck. Officers canvased the area but were unable to locate any of the stolen vehicles. The investigation is ongoing.

#CrimeAlert: Catalytic Converter Theft • According to Cars.com, catalytic converters are designed to act as a line of defense against harmful exhaust system emissions by turning pollutants into harmless gasses. Thieves target catalytic converters because they contain precious metals, like platinum, palladium, or rhodium, that are valuable to metal dealers. Due to increased theft in the United States, converters are in short supply. Keep your car in the garage if possible. It only takes 2 minutes for a thief to get your converter.

We have gone from working Public Safety Dispatch in two rooms, divided by a concrete wall, with an old raised floor and miles and miles of leftover cables and wiring from the past 20 years ... to a BRIGHT, PROFESSIONAL, PHENOMENAL workspace for a TRULY PHENOMENAL team! We are so excited they now have a workspace as wonderful as they are. The shift pictured below was the shift on duty during the temporary move to the EOC, and the shift on duty during the major part of the wall demolition when it was a just a bit noisy. They never missed a beat, so it was great they were the shift on duty when the new room was fully staffed for the first time.

Someone stopped by, while I was working as school crossing guard, and gave me a poinsettia. I said Thank you so much!, but unfortunately those plants are poison to cats. So I dropped it off at The Colony Police station. They could use something so beautiful in their break room.
HAPPY FIRST RESPONDER'S DAY TO TCPD & TCFD !!! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO !! HAVE A GREAT DAY !!!
It's that time again !! In school classes begins Tuesday, September 8th. Stay safe!
Any current "blotter" items?
In regards to the drills that you were pulling in your parking lot this morning, (August 5) I understand that the current social and political climate requires that you train for these types of situations. My question is: could you please train in a less conspicuous place? Seeing a “Citizen patrol” person with a rifle trained on a vehicle is a bit unnerving and quite frankly, distracting. Keep doing good work. Thanks officers.
