Dallas police chief trying new strategies to fill officer shortage
With the Dallas Police Department working to make up for a shortage of police officers, Chief Renee Hall told city council members on Monday, Dec. 11, about some new strategies to fill jobs. Hall is looking at everything from rewarding officers who recruit candidates to eliminating some of the automatic disqualifiers, like minor drug use from someone's past. Both the Dallas Police Department and Dallas Fire-Rescue are struggling to find people who want to protect and serve. Both chiefs told city council members that recruiting millennials has posed as a challenge.
