NOCUPP Information Session

Tomorrow! Tuesday, October 25 from 6:30-8 p.m.
Turner House, 401 North Rosemont Ave.

There will be a NOCUPP Information Session next week where DPD officers will discuss recent crime trends and share at-home crime prevention methods. A Q/A session will follow.

NOCUPP provides off-duty DPD officers to patrol our neighborhood to help prevent crime before it happens. Since NOCUPP started back in 2007 property crime has dropped by over 60% in participating neighborhoods. The results of the patrol speak for themselves. From 2007 to 2016 (YTD), our officers accomplished the following:
* Responded to over 9,400 calls for service from concerned neighbors
* Performed over 28,000 vacation and construction watches
* Made over 3,450 traffic stops
* Issued over 1,300 citations to drivers
* Made over 765 arrests

NOCUPP provides patrols in nine neighborhoods of North Oak Cliff: East Kessler, Kessler Park, Kessler Plaza, Kings Highway, Ravinia Heights, Stevens Park, Estates, Stevens Park Village, West Kessler and Winnetka Heights.

Please come enjoy wine and cheese, plus meet the NOCUPP officers, the volunteers who represent each member neighborhood on the board, and other neighbors who are concerned about crime in our area.

NOCUPP is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving public safety in North Oak Cliff by hiring off duty Dallas Police officers to patrol member neighborhoods in a marked DPD police car. NOCUPP is run by a volunteer board and NOCUPP is entirely supported by member contributions.

Chris Watts and Todd Fisher

Meet Membership Chairs, Todd Fisher and Chris Watts

In the 2016 Fall Newsletter, we introduced our WHNA Membership Chairs, Todd Fisher and Chris Watts, and shared all the exciting things they’ve brought — and are continuing to bring — to our neighborhood. Let’s get to know this dynamic duo a little more.


How long have you lived in Winnetka Heights?

We moved to Winnetka Heights in February of 1998. We’re so lucky to have found this little gem of a neighborhood. We wouldn’t live anywhere else in Dallas.


What’s your favorite thing about living in our neighborhood?

We love the sense of community. We’ve developed wonderful friendships over the years. We’ve seen neighbors really pull together when someone is in need. And we all wave to each other! How great it that!? It’s a “can do” neighborhood and we couldn’t live in a better community when the Zombie Apocalypse happens.


What do you do for fun?

We love decorating for Halloween and Christmas. November 1, we’re usually already planning for the next year. We really enjoy scaring the bejeezus out of kids, and making moms and dads laugh.


What’s your favorite off-the-beaten-path thing to do in Oak Cliff?

Karaoke at Barbara’s Pavillion, and early morning or dusk walks at Twelve Hills Nature Center.
