Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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 would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
