Last night’s LGNA meeting lasted a little longer than usual. Anytime Crime is the topic, the questions and concerns can go on for a while.
The meeting began with our “annual meeting”, a formality of our by-laws where we elect members to the board. Three minutes later, we turned the floor over to Lt. Albert Martinez of the Dallas Police. Lt. Martinez provided a pile of crime prevention literature and spoke about some of the things that make our neighborhood a target, such as dimly lit streets and excessive street parking.
Following Lt. Martinez, LGNA Crime Watch coordinator Darren Dattalo presented a report with a summary of crime reports for the last 6 years. You can download a pdf of the report here:
