Dallas police were actually working to reduce police violence

Despite the fact that a rogue shooter decided to open fire on Dallas police officers last week, the department was actually working with the local community to build trust in the police force and work on peaceful policing techniques. On Monday, Police Chief David Brown said that the number of times police officers had shot members of the community and the number of complaints about violent force from officers had dropped drastically during his time as chief. The National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice said that Chief Brown and his Dallas police force were actually a great model for making a police force less violent and a supportive force in the Dallas area. He had faced backlash from police unions for moving officers into foot patrols, but criminal justice groups praise Brown’s efforts in community policing.
