The safety and security enjoyed by Dallas residents is due to the "Shield over Dallas" provided by the city's highly effective and well-run police department. Produced by the Dallas Citizens Traffic Commission, this early 1960's film focuses on the everyday duties of the Dallas Police Department which keep the citizenry safe. Also featured is the Dallas County Sheriff's Department, which patrolled the rural areas of Dallas County. Points of interest in the film include footage of First National Bank of Dallas and Love Field Airport.
