Conference Hosts


The Dallas Police Department (DPD) is proud  to be a co-presenter of the 16th Annual Conference on Crimes Against Women. While DPD's primary goal is to prevent crime from occurring, it is also deeply committed to solving crimes after they occur. Both violent and property crimes are vigorously and thoroughly investigated by dedicated detectives assigned to both the Special Investigations and the Crimes Against Persons Divisions of the DPD.  

By collaborating with Genesis Women's Shelter & Support and the other agencies responsible for this Conference, the Dallas Police Department aims to arm attendees with tools for the prevention of the victimization of women and for improved response by the criminal justice system to these crimes.
