According to Southlake’s Police Chief Steve Mylett crime in the city is on a “downward trend,” and it’s the result of a joint effort between citizens and the police department. 

“The Southlake Police Department is so proud of the unique partnership we have formed with our citizens,” Chief Mylett says. “Your efforts to heed safety warnings play such a pivotal role in our efforts to reduce crime and reduce the threat of crime and help prevent you from becoming a victim.”

Some of the strategic measurements that have worked to reduce crime include: the Hide, Lock, Take program, neighborhood and business watches and checks initiated by our Patrol Division, our District Sergeants Program, police officers attending HOA and SPARK meetings, and our Community Initiatives efforts to help educate the public.

The overall decrease in crime statistics for the last three years is very impressive. Auto burglaries, residential burglaries, accidents and thefts have all decreased. “As we set our sights on 2015, let’s continue this trend of working together to reduce crime even more this year,” Chief Mylett says.
