The fall membership drive is now underway. Please be on the lookout for your renewal letter, and and if needed update your property information form with any changes. We really would like to get email addreses for all members, since most of our communications go out by email. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Please keep those alleys clear
Some of the alleys in in our area are getting overgrown. It’s not just an aesthetic issue. Officers of the North Oak Cliff United Police Patrol (NOCUPP) say that criminals can easily hide in the bushes, waiting for an opportunity to commit a crime or safely escape afterward. Not only that, in a few alleys police patrol cars have a hard time getting through the alley to do their patrols. If they cannot drive the alley it does not get patrolled. Since a lot of people NOCUPP has encountered in the past in alley have been found with flashlight and screwdriver in hand (hmm…) or a long rap sheet of past theft and burglary convictions, we definitely want the squad car to pass through. Keeping our alleys clear helps prevent crime on your block and keep burglars and auto thieves out of our area.
Fire trucks, utility vehicles and other emergency vehicles also need access to the alley even when it is not used by most residents, andthe City of Dallas occasionally decides to stop garbage pickups in a particular alley if there trucks don’t have enough clearance to pass through without touching vegetation. Once they City decides to stop trash pickups in an alley, it is a very hard process to get them to agree to do it again, even after your block cleans up the alley.
Cleaning up alleys is entirely the responsibility of the residents, whether you have a garage on it or not, so please take a moment to check out back, and if your shrubs need a trim, put it on your To Do list for this weekend! It is a nice time of year to do a little trimming out back and next week (11/18) happens to be bulk trash pickup week.
We received the following postive feedback from a NOCUPP member this week:
Officer Huber is my sons new hero! Gavin and I had a brief encounter with Officer Huber at our home when he checked in with us on a vacation watch call we had placed.
My son, having a slight obsession with law enforcement ask him several questions and Officer Huber told Gavin he would stop by in a few days to see if he had been a “good boy” at school.
Well, unfortunately Officer Huber wasn’t able to keep that date, however, this is what we found waiting for us on our front door step today. Please see pictures.
I really hope he understands what a huge impact he made on my son today. Thank you Officer Huber and NOCUPP for being such great neighbors.
I had a great recent experience that proves how useful this is.
About 10 days ago I left a message on the telephone line as advised about going to [out of own] for a week and requesting supervision. I noted that I would be back in Dallas late in the 25th
the next day late in the afternoon I was unloading groceries from the car to the house when I noted a Dallas police car driving on Edgefield towards Kessler Parkway, it stopped and hesitated for some time before driving on.
I am certain that they knew that my house was under surveillance, decided that I was okay and drove on.
I’m so happy with my annual investment and appreciate your contribution so much
We are halfway through the fall membership drive for NOCUPP. We need more members. If you have not joined or renewed please do so now. NOCUPP is entirely member supported and the number of patrol hours for each neighborhood is based directly on how many paying memberships we have from KNU neighbors. If you have any questions on NOCUPP or would like membership forms please contact us.
