DEVONSHIRE ANNUAL MEETING

Westminster Presbyterian Church
Please join us on Wednesday,
3/4, for the Annual Neighborhood Meeting.
Kevin will discuss the latest
information on crime in the neighborhood.
Devonshire is also a fun
place to live. We will discuss
neighborhood events - past
and upcoming - that provide
the sense of community that makes Devonshire so
Your membership and
participation are necessary to keep this great neighborhood a
safe place to live. Renewals and new memberships will be accepted

Meeting with Dallas District
February 27th, 7:00 at
Providence Christian School
Last year, Dallas District
Attorney John Creuzot announced an new non-prosecution policy for low level
DA Cruezot will meet with the
community on Thursday, February 27th from 7:00-8:30pm at Providence Christian
School, 5002 Lovers Lane,
Dallas to explain his policy and answer your questions. Attend and learn how
prosecution policies for
these offenses (such as auto break-ins, porch thefts and other crimes) which
onstitute the bulk of
criminal activity in many of our neighborhoods are changing. Will these changes
more crime? How will they
affect policing in our neighborhoods? Some fear that less prosecution, means
police priority and arrests
which could lead to increased crime. Are these concerns justified? Come,
ask questions and judge for yourself.
This event is sponsored by
Briarwood Crime Watch Neighborhood Association along with Devonshire
Shorecrest Crime Watch and Elm Thicket/North Park Neighborhood.

Matching $ Program
June 19, 2019 - We are in the final 11 days of the Matching Program. Please join or renew your membership NOW! Any donations to help support our off duty police program are eligible to be matched.
This May and June we are asking all members to participate in a
campaign to raise money to fund additional patrol hours for our
neighborhood. A generous neighbor has
offered to match up to $10,000 of funds we collect during this timeframe. Each
hour of patrol costs $45. If we raise
$10,000 and combine it with the $10,000 match we will have $20,000. That buys over 400 patrol hours.
Make a Contribution
Any new member dues, renewal of memberships that have lapsed 3+
months and all money collected for additional patrol hours will be matched
dollar for dollar by this anonymous donor.
Please consider making a contribution for additional patrol hours
- you can make a difference!
Go to www.devonshireneighborhood.com
to make a contribution via credit card or PayPal or mail your check to: DNA 5600 W. Lovers Lane, Suite 116, Box 251,
Dallas, TX 75209.
Recruit your Neighbors
We are asking each active member to help recruit your neighbors to
join the DNA. Increased membership means
more money to pay for patrol hours. Today, 50% of the homes in Devonshire are
not members. If you don’t see the green
DNA sign in your neighbor’s yard, please tell them about the benefits of the
DNA and ask them to join. A list of
“Member Only Benefits” is on the back page.
Block Captains will be knocking on doors and leaving information on matching campaign at every home in the neighborhood to help spread the message about this program.
Wednesday, May 15 - Join us for Devonshire Wine night at Pogo's in Inwood Village.
Membership in the Devonshire Neighborhood Association (DNA) has increased enough to support adding 20 extra patrol hours/month! Thank you for joining, renewing, block captaining, talking to neighbors about joining, etc.
This is just the first step in keeping our community safe. Please talk to your neighbors about becoming members. More members = more patrol hours!
Upcoming events - stay tuned for details:
- We will be having a get together for Block Captains and neighbors who are interested in getting involved in the DNA - either serving on the board or volunteering to help out. We are planning on a Wednesday evening in September at the Church.
- Lover's Seafood has offered to host a neighborhood get-together on their patio. A portion of the beverage purchases will be donated to the DNA. Possibly in October - we need cooler weather for the patio.
- The Chili Cook-Off is back ! Tentative date is Sunday, November 11th.
THANK YOU for your commitment to making our Devonshire community a happy and safe place to live.
