1 Neighborhood Preservation Committee By Chief Russ Kerbow

2  Background  Crime Statistics  NRO/NET  Abatement Strategies

3  Background ◦ “Broken Windows” Theory – ignoring small but annoying problems can lead to larger ones. ◦ Neighborhood decline – takes from as few as 5 years for some “new” neighborhoods to begin decline  Rental Property Conversion  Infrastructure Appearance  Lack of Order  Presence of Crime  Fear of Safety

4  Crime Reporting - Background ◦ Incident Based Reporting System (IBRS) ◦ Most Reporting Electronic  Field-Based Reporting ◦ Crime Data Analysis  Crime Data Technician  Sky Watch Tower Placement  COMPSTAT Meeting ◦ Reporting Areas  Districts, Beats & Individual Reporting Areas (IRAs)


6  Neighborhood Nuisance Crimes: ◦ Burglary (Home, Auto, Sheds/Out Buildings) ◦ Criminal Mischief (Graffiti) ◦ Curfew Violations ◦ Drug Offenses ◦ Gang Activity ◦ Theft ◦ Robbery (Individual) ◦ Parking Violations (Facing Wrong Way, In Front of a Neighbor’s House, Blocking Sidewalk, In Front Yard)

7 Loud Noise  Ordinance amended and passed by Council on February 1, 2010  Amendments include: ◦ Defines ‘clearly audible’ while re-defining ‘daytime’ and ‘nighttime’ hours. ◦ Clearly audible shall mean sound that can be heard without the assistance of any device. ◦ Daytime redefined to 9:00 am on Saturday and Sunday while extending hours on Friday and Saturday evening to 11:00 pm. A similar change to the definition of nighttime mirrors the definition change in daytime hours. ◦ Sections are reorganized to facilitate easier understanding of the ordinance and includes that violations of the article are indisputable; it also introduces the “reasonable and prudent” adult person standard for offensive acts along with creating a 100 foot distance from the noise source. ◦ Exempts city-operated or city sponsored events and athletic events conducted by LISD while authorizing council to grant variances to any noise restriction set forth in the article. ◦ Note: Loud or Barking Dogs are covered under a separate ordinance and are not governed by this ordinance.  Disorderly Conduct, 42.01 Texas Penal Code (makes unreasonable noise in a public place or in or near a private residence that he has no right to occupy) ◦ Presumed unreasonable if noise exceeds 85 decibels after being warned by a magistrate or peace officer.

38  GANGS ◦ Who Are Gang Members?  Individuals who meet criteria set up in Chapter 61. Texas Code of Criminal Procedure  A Gang Intelligence database may be shared with others in criminal justice provided it meets the criteria set forth in statute (a provision of Texas statutes requires this database following Federal guidelines found in 28 CFR Section 23.1).

39  Gang Unit ◦ 2 Officers Assigned Full Time ◦ Gather Intelligence for Database  Must comply with state law ◦ “We’re All Gang Officers” mentality & “Zero Tolerance”

41  Neighborhood Resource Officer Program (NRO) ◦ Four NRO Officers, each assigned to one of the Four Patrol Districts  Assignment includes working with neighbors to solve time-consuming issues or problems ◦ 2005-06 Neighborhood Enhancement Team (NET) Project ◦ Work closely with Code Enforcement dealing with nuisances & Quality of Life Issues

42  Available Intervention Strategies ◦ Traditional Law Enforcement  Can include creative solutions such as electronic or “eyes on” surveillance, bike/foot patrol, trash runs, etc. ◦ NRO Program ◦ “Close Patrol” for specific problems/locations ◦ Lawsuit to abate common and public nuisances, Ch.125 Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code & 101.70 Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code  Particularly useful for gang abatement and can be applied to all types of property

43  Intervention Strategies – Future Consideration ◦ Project Days – concentrated effort for set time period ◦ Chronic Nuisance Ordinance  Creates an intermediary step prior to using the State’s nuisance abatement process  Typically triggers at 3 to 4 police responses to an address for an eligible offense ◦ Code Enforcement & NRO Combined (City of Irving)  Includes some cross training of staff ◦ Citizens on Patrol/Crime Watch Board Volunteers  Employ more “eyes and ears” in our neighborhoods ◦ Youth Programs  Identify “at risk” youths and involve them in after school activities (CISNT/Operation Peace of Mind)
