Nearly 100 Officers Have Quit, Retired From Dallas Police Force Since October

The Dallas police department has seen an exodus of officers leave the force since October, with 99 officers either retiring or simply quitting over the past few months.

The department has only been able to hire an additional 30 officers for their upcoming academy, well short of the desired 60.

This has left the department at approximately 3,252 officers, far under it's desired staffing level of 3,500.

The staffing shortage comes on top of continued concern over the city's police and fire pension fund.
