Statement from Chief of Police David O. Brown regarding Dallas Police Department Succession Plan

Chief_Brown_-_Dallas_PD“The Dallas Police Department is planning for the future.

Due to recent and anticipated retirements, I have requested two (2) additional positions within the Command Staff to further the success of the organization and to meet the identified challenges of the future.  The ratio of Command Staff to officers is consistent with other cities. These positions will be funded through the elimination of desk duty jobs.

The police department must constantly change in a changing environment to meet public safety needs.”
