We received a question about graffiti on fences and police driving around the neighborhood.
If you see graffiti, it should be reported to code enforcement, or call the DeSoto Action Center at 972-274-2489. It shouldn’t take more than a week to get the graffiti cleaned.
Police officers regularly patrol neighborhoods in DeSoto, and there is also a Citizens on Patrol group. This does not mean that there is problem, just general surveillance. If there are increased concerns in a neighborhood, we can request more police presence.
Please, do not hesitate to contact us about your concerns, or to contact code enforcement or the action center. The code enforcement website has an online submission form to make things easy.
Tall grass, downed fences, dead trees, abandoned vehicles, etc, can all be reported to code enforcement.
