VICKERY MIDTOWN PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT INVESTS $225,000 ANNUALLY TO PROVIDE PRIVATE SECURITY IN THE DISTRICT TO SUPPLEMENT AND SUPPORT THE DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT.
This investment is having a tremendous impact on improving safety within the District. Crime rates of Historical Part I crimes (murder and non-negligent homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, larceny theft and arson) are 75% lower than they were since the inception of the Public Improvement District.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Our private security team monitors Dallas Police Dispatch and responds to calls dispatched within the PID boundaries. When not responding to calls, the security team proactively patrols the PID in an effort to curb illegal and criminal activity. Patrols are performed 8 hours a day via two security officers in marked vehicles and 16 hours a day when school is not in session. Patrol times and frequency are adjusted as determined by criminal activity.
