Southwest Maps and Information
Southwest is one of seven Patrol divisions within the City of Dallas. Not unlike the other divisions, Southwest is divided into five geographic areas. These areas are refered to as Sectors. The Sector name designations are 410,420,430,440 and 450. To view the map with the locations of each Sector click here .
Each Sector is overseen by a Lieutenant of Police called a Geographic commander. Additionally, each Sector have Sergeant of Police for each Watch covering all 24 hours of the day. First Watch or "late nights" covers the hours between 11:00 pm and 8:00 am. Second Watch or "primary days" covers the hours between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm and Thrid Watch or "evenings" covers the hours between 3:00 pm and 12:00 am.

Each Sector is then divided into smaller areas called Beats and are patrolled by Beat Officers. Each Beat then contains neighborhoods
which are refered to as Reporting Areas. For Information on the Beat Officers in your area, contact your Sector Supervisor. To see what Beats are in your Sector, click on the appropriate link below.
Reporting Areas are "neighborhoods" within each beat. Reporting areas are used when officers need look at crime statistics in a particular area or locate crime watches, Neighborhood Associations or Home Owners Associations. Reporting areas are also used by citizens to investigate what crimes are happening where they live. To find out what your reporting area is, contact your
Neighborhood Police officer.
