Following this afternoon’s curfew announcement by Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall, in coordination with the City of Dallas, the Mayors for the City of University Park and the Town of Highland Park have issued a mandatory curfew for all residents...
...beginning at 7 o’clock tonight and ending at 6 o’clock tomorrow morning.The curfew announcement supports public safety efforts to maintain the peace and protect property.
Adherence to the curfew order is simple: stay in your homes during curfew hours. As we have previously advised, both the City and Town patrol personnel will remain highly visible in our neighborhoods. We also remain in close communication with our public safety partners across the region.
Unlike the City of Dallas, where the curfew includes only certain portions of the City, the curfew for the City of University Park and the Town of Highland Park involves all neighborhoods throughout both jurisdictions.
City and Town residents can assist public safety efforts by taking these simple actions:
• Park your vehicles in the garage
• If vehicles are curbside or driveway, make sure you lock them
• If vehicles are curbside, please remove all valuables from view
• Even while home, lock your doors and arm alarm systems
If you see something suspicious, call 911. Likewise, if we have something to report we will use our various social media platforms and external communication to provide you with the latest information and advisories. If the City and Town decide to extend the curfew to tomorrow night and beyond, the City and Town will use all our communication platforms to advise residents of that action in a timely manner.
Thank you for your assistance and support.
