Emergency services within the City of Dallas are performed by the Dallas Police Department and Dallas Fire-Rescue. Both are striving to reduce and prevent crime and to improve the safety of all citizens.

Dallas Police Department

The Police Department, in serving the people of Dallas, strives to reduce crime and provide a safe city by:

  • Recognizing that its goal is to help people and provide assistance at every opportunity;
  • Providing preventative, investigative and enforcement services;
  • Increasing citizen satisfaction with public safety and obtaining community cooperation through the Department’s training, skills, and efforts; and
  • Realizing that the Police Department alone cannot control crime, but must act in concert with the community and the rest of the Criminal Justice System.
