Dallas Police Chief David Brown told\nNews 8 he was worried about looting.\n\nDPD set up a command post at the Tommie Allen Recreation Center\nin South Dallas. It's close to where about 50 homes were damaged.\n\nThe chief was worried that with street lights out, criminals may\ntry to sneak in and loot damaged homes. So Dallas police brought\nin flood lights, along with extra officers, so they can patrol\nthe damaged areas around-the-clock.\n\nThey put roadblocks in place in some areas, and police tried to\nrestrict access to devastated neighborhoods to residents.\n\nOfficers realize disaster victims can be tempting targets to\ncriminals.\n\nAs we move into the recovery, the Dallas police had a quick\nreminders.\n\nOf course, they warned to avoid downed power lines, but also\nurged people to be careful with generators and power tools\nduring the clean-up. Make sure generators are outside to avoid\ncarbon monoxide poisoning, and when you start cleaning up\nWednesday, use common sense with power tools.\n\nBut the big concern Tuesday night was the lack of power in many\nneighborhoods.\n\nIf driving around in areas where street lights and traffic\nlights are out, police urge you to slow down and watch out for\npedestrians or other cars.\n\nI wonder if Bobbi knows the police will post her blotter photo\nwhen she gets arrested for looting.
