Award Description: The COPS Hiring Recovery Program (CHRP) provides funding directly to law enforcement agencies to hire and/or rehire career law enforcement officers in an effort to create and preserve jobs, and to increase their community policing capacity and crime prevention efforts. The City of Dallas was awarded $8,896,300 to fund 50 officers over the course of 3 years.
Project Description: Our agency has not hired any of the officers that is was awarded during the reporting period. This project will hire 50 additional police officers to supplement the Dallas Police Department's community policing activities. The Dallas Police Department will hire the recruits, then train them to become sworn police officers by using the department's eight-month training academy. The recruits will be hired in increments of 25 to 30 per class. Any recruits or sworn officers that leave employment with the Dallas Police Department will be replaced by either a new recruit or by personnel that have recently completed the initial training program. These additional officers will assist in identifying and prioritizing crime and disorder problems in collaboration with citizens and stakeholders; exploring the underlying factors and conditions that contribute to crime and disorder problems through the examination of patterns and trends involving repeat victims, offenders, and locations; implementing comprehensive, long-term solutions to public safety problems; assessing the effectiveness of responses; and incorporating problem-solving principles into patrol work.
Jobs Summary: No hiring occurred during the period ending 09/30/2009 (Total jobs reported: 0)
Project Status: Not Started
