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.
