On Tuesday October 17, our new Chief of Police U.Renee Hall will be present at the North Central quarterly Crime Watch meeting.
The meeting will be held at the JCC auditorium, 7900 Northaven Road. The meeting will begin promptly at 6:30 PM and will conclude at 7:30 PM. Current and former VIP members will be honored and I hope that you will be able to attend. Let’s have a large turnout from our neighborhood. This will be a great opportunity to meet our new Chief of Police. Please spread the message to your neighbors.

Come out and meet your neighbors
in our fall block party.
“This past weekend a man described as “average height and build” approached a 6-year-old girl at Cox Lane Park. Another adult interrupted the incident.
A formal police report was filed (dated 8/14/2017) and the crime listed was “enticing a child”. Though the description is very broad, we have a great opportunity to get a predator off the street. There are eyewitnesses whose identification can lead to an arrest and conviction.
If you see a lone male hanging out at one of our neighborhood parks:
1) Do not approach. Assume they could be dangerous.
2) Immediately call 911 and report a “suspicious individual possibly matching the description of the Cox Lane Park predator filed in a report on 8/14″.
3) If children are present, clarify this to 911 to insure a high priority response.
4) If you have access to an Extended Neighborhood Patrol, notify them in addition to the 911 call.
5) Optionally you might want to update this post. Obviously being male and being in a park is not a crime.
Use your best judgement as whether to call and let the DPD sort this out as they are trained to do so. If we are diligent as a community, we can get this guy. (I am away on business and do not have any other details. I’ve gathered these facts and simply wanted to get this out in an actionable format.)”

“What an awesome 4th of July in Melshire!
Heather and I were so impressed with how wonderfully the event was organized and thought out. Oh and what a great turn out. I went to the Melshire HOA website and imagined making a short video for the other Melshire residents that explains the benefits of joining the HOA. It could have footage of events like today, interviews of HOA representatives and residents, and even the patrol.
The video would live on the website and the purpose would be to raise awareness, strengthen the community and outline the benefits of joining the Melshire HOA.
It’s wonderful to be a apart of the neighborhood! We’re so blessed that our baby Elle will grow up here.”
Thanks for the suggestion. We love the idea of a video and we’ll be working one soon.

On a Wednesday afternoon, a father pushes a stroller while his son, wearing a Mavs yarmulke, rides past Jamestown Park on a Razor Scooter, the fringed tzitzit hanging from his cargo shorts waving in the breeze. Around the corner, Hispanic, African-American, and Anglo kids escape into the sun during their lunch hour at E.D. Walker Middle School.
This diverse neighborhood is set between the Tollway and Preston Road to the west and east, and Charlestown Drive and Forest Lane to the north and south. The large lots, housing a mix of sprawling, traditional ranches and modern, transitional new-builds, are quietly tucked amid schools, churches, and shopping centers. In addition to Walker Middle School, there’s Jesuit Dallas, St. Rita Catholic School, Dallas International School, and Alcuin School. The Dallas Texas Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sits behind Congregation Ohr HaTorah. As far as shopping? You can get your hair and nails done, deposit a check, get your suit tailored and your car washed, take your kid to the pediatrician, stop at the kosher Tom Thumb, and pick up a bubble tea on your way home from yoga, all at the end of the block. And just wait until they finish the new development where Valley View Mall used to be. This is a neighborhood residents never need, or want, to leave.
