The Year So Far in Dallas Crime

One of the most fascinating things about the Dallas Police Department's blog, DPDBeat.com, are the action-packed photos and videos the department posts to try to solve unsolved crimes. So far, DPD Beat has featured hammer-wielding thieves busting up an ATM, a massive counterfeit bust and employees fighting back when their business were robbed. The slideshow below collects some of the best DPD has to offer, along with a couple of Observer photos that help tell the story of Dallas crime in 2016. 
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
