Police 2 Citizen
The Cedar Hill Police Department, in collaboration with the DeSoto and Duncanville Police Departments, just opened a new website called "Police2Citizen". This site offers users the ability to see dispatched police calls, pull up crime based upon an address and radius, map crime, and see "Most Wanted" and "Missing Persons" information and report certain non emergency crimes. These are just a few examples of the new features available. We invite you to try it!
