    Some DPD Officers Say Unfair Discipline, Stress Partly Behind Slower Response

    Dallas Police Chief Brown told city council members Monday that new training requirements are responsible for the slower response to priority one calls now at eight minutes and 13 seconds the highest in at least three years.


    Priority two calls take more than 22 minutes despite a city goal of 12 minutes.

    The need to be lawfully armed is imparative. It is hoped that OC in TX will have some level of a negative impact on the criminal element.

    Good luck Texas.

    A work slow-down. Where have we heard of that before?

    What does 10, or 20 minutes make when the problem is NOW. Mehhhhh, sooner people stop counting on other people the sooner they will be more secure.

    No matter when LEOs get there. They are not mighty mice called to save the day. After the fact, they will bring yellow tape, chalk, and camera......then try to solve.

    You want protection? Then you must provide it for yourself!

    When the political masters finally realize that their political future is directly tied to the performance of their armed minion the master reigns in the minion. Cops do have a tough job, as does everyone, when your boss starts scrutinizing your performance and initiates a cost/benefit analysis.
