Dallas police went door-to-door on Saturday as part of a crime fighting effort called the 10-70-20 Crime Reduction program.
The philosophy is that 10% of the people in any given community won't tolerate crime and are actively working against it. Another 20% are the criminals. Dallas police, with the help of off-duty employees, are seeking to engage the 70% who are generally apathetic.
"So anytime you can get involved with the people in a neighborhood it reduces crime. It also gives us that interaction. And again we're received very well in the neighborhood, " said Chief Jesse Reyes.
The officers concentrated on apartment complexes in the Northwest Division Saturday.
The 10-70-20 program began in 2002.
