Addison Police Department releases crime map to public
The Addison Police Department and BAIR Analytics Inc. recently partnered to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Addison. The Addison Police Department now has an online crime map called RAIDS Online that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Addison citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the Addison Police Department to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur.

Addison knew it, but now it's official. In January, the Addison Police Department was certified as a Recognized Police Department by the Texas Police Chiefs Recognition Committee. Because Addison has always been diligent in practicing industry standards and staying current with changes in law enforcement, the Department completed the usual two-year review process in record time (six months.)  Congratulations to our Law Enforcement team!

Building Trust and Relationships

The community feel to Addison comes from building trust and relationships.  The use of Federal Stimulus money reflects this philosophy as funds have been used to:

  • Assign a Community Liaison Officer to Addison Circle, a dense, multi-use area of residences and businesses.  A visible presence and a valuable member of the community, the officer gets to know the people and the environment, and can respond quickly and effectively to any issue.
  • Expand the Hotel/Business Retention Program (HBRP) unit.  Addison's core businesses are hotels and restaurants.  This team of officers teaches employees to identify and report any suspicious activity 24/7.  Response is quick and thorough.  The program has already reduced crime in the targets hotels and restaurants and their adjacent areas.
