Public safety was at the top of the agenda for Dallas City Councilman Casey Thomas as he addressed steadily increasing crime rates, the causes and prevention efforts; along with Police Chief Eddie Garcia.

“Now is the time to come together; city leadership, clergy, community leaders and the Dallas Police Department to take ownership for preventing crime in our community this summer,” Councilman Thomas said during a press conference at the Thurgood Marshall Recreation Center on Saturday.

Councilman Thomas and Chief Garcia were joined by Dallas City Councilmembers Jesse Moreno, Adam Bazaldua, and Gay Donnell-Willis; Dallas NAACP’s Sharon Middlebrooks, and Rev. Ronald Wright of the Justice Seekers.
