Don’t let the door hit you in the ass
Police recruiters are trying to bring in hundreds of new police officers in Dallas.
Nearly 100 officers in the Dallas Police Department have quit or retired since October, according to multiple reports, worsening the department’s deficit of personnel.
Interim Police Chief David Pughes told City Council members Monday night that the department wanted to fill the next academy class with 60 officers but has only hired 30 for the February class, the Dallas Morning News reported. The department is down to 3,252 officers and wold like to have at least 3,500.
CBS 11 reported that most of the 99 who left since Oct. 1 were some of Dallas’ most experienced officers, according to the incoming president of the Dallas Police Association.
The recruitment/departure rate problems stem from the last fiscal year, which ended in September, in which 294 officers left and 142 were hired.
The Morning News reported the department has a rising crime rate on top of troubled pension funds and low salaries compared to other cities.”
Well, well, well
It looks like the chickens are coming home to roost
The cell phone/video age has caught up to the badged bandits
Hard to earn respect and get default hero status when your nefarious actions are caught on video
Bit of a reckoning from those you are sworn to serve and protect?
Abuse not for free anymore?
Good riddance to the lot of you
A new age is dawning
And in it a camera is pointed right at you
