New Police District Station in Oak Cliff… A Long Time Coming

I saw something on the Council agenda that raised my spirits. There will be a vote to start construction next month for the South Central Police substation, to be located at Camp Wisdom near Lancaster in the Singing Hills area in Oak Cliff (map). Construction will start in July and the building should be completed in May of 2007. It will house up to 500 officers!

Right now, South and East Oak Cliff police come from either the SE District police substation in Pleasant Grove, or the SW Division police station at Illinois and Cockrell Hill. That contributes to slower response times to crime, and overall lack of police presence because the officers are overworked and stretched too thin.

This time next year, Oak Cliff will be a lot safer. Thanks to Councilman Fantroy and all others involved for making sure that this project is completed.
