March 4th, 7:00 at 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

special.

 

Your membership and participation are necessary to keep this great neighborhood a

safe place to live.  Renewals and new memberships will be accepted at the meeting.

Meeting with Dallas District Attorney

February 27th, 7:00 at Providence Christian School

Last year, Dallas District Attorney John Creuzot announced an new non-prosecution policy for low level offenses.

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 lead to

more crime? How will they affect policing in our neighborhoods? Some fear that less prosecution, means lower

police priority and arrests which could lead to increased crime. Are these concerns justified? Come, listen,

 ask questions and judge for yourself.

This event is sponsored by Briarwood Crime Watch Neighborhood Association along with Devonshire

Neighborhood Association, Shorecrest Crime Watch and Elm Thicket/North Park Neighborhood.

Increased hours will start on November 25th and go through December 2nd for Thanksgiving.  Increased hours will start again on December 16th and go through January 3rd.

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.

August 2018

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.
