Help Wanted - Dallas

  • The Dallas Police Department has come to Chicago, looking to recruit some of the 300 new police officers the organization wants to hire this year.

    [...] Senior Corporal Ray Milburn said the recent Dallas officer deaths and general climate for police has not scared people from applying this year.

    “It was very similar to the World Trade Center on 9/11 when the military had an influx of people,” he said.

    “The thing that I ask [people] is that if their mom, their grandma, their kids needed an officer, who would they want to come answer that call? It’s a career, it’s a job, and you got to have a passion for wanting to do this,” he said.

    Corporal Milburn said the Dallas PD is looking for more diversity, especially women. He also acknowledged the department chose to recruit in Chicago because of the city’s diversity. About a hundred Dallas officers hired in the last five years came from Illinois as well.
The window closed for yesterday, but a quick google search will bring up application procedures.

SCC - Perhaps a "caveat emptor" to someone thinking of being the police in "Big D." The pension fund evidently is even more messed up than ours and current officers are bailing out and cashing out funds. Maybe Austin, San Antonio, Arlington, or Plano would be better cities to consider.

Dallas is not Shangri-La.

Officers leaving in droves for suburbs for more money and "less diversity" and that entails.

Their pension fund is in worse shape than ours.

EVERYONE is armed.

It's simple. They're targeting CPD officers stuck in a liberal city that doesn't have their back. CPD officers are experienced. Dallas is smart because CPD officers would get out of this state and be a good addition to Dallas

Passion to do this job quickly goes out the door the minute an officer leaves the academy and is introduced to the station politics.

Why anyone would leave here just to go to Dallas PD, with their own bag of serious $$$ pension problems, is anyone's guess.
Are there better environments to be the police than here? Very likely, but don't look at Dallas PD as one of those places. People have been leaving the DPD at an even faster rate than here for quite a while now.

Dallas PD was mentioned here on the blog before. They are no better than Shitcago when it comes to liberal bias against their police. Like most municipalities, they are infested with urban leeches who are multiplying, consuming, and demanding more entitlements each year while the elected idiots tax the working citizens right out of existence. They've had their share of bad press propaganda and officers there are jumping ship due to the weak and fearful leadership of that department as they have caved in to political pressure. Texas is still a "red" state, but with expanding liberal cesspools like Houston and Dallas, they are beginning to turn that state slightly left.

As as former CPD guy that ended up in Texas, you can "lateral" in to most any suburban Dept; but Dallas, Ft Worth, Houston, the "big city" Depts will make you go through their academy. Just like our "metro" vs CPD academy deal. The state is great, they love their LEO's, but the inner cities have the same BS. For most of the smaller agencies, you have a pension that is carried by the Texas Municipal Retirment System (TMRS). They credit you with any other LEO time; my CPD time counted and I was vested after one year. Dallas IS lower paid than most surrounding smaller depts. it is a good place to be but Dallas guys are leaving faster than they can hire them. Ft Worth would be the better of the two. Anyway stay safe out their.

Well at least they raise the issue of "Da Job" being more than a pay-check. Using the Reality that Police Work should be more than a job and entails Passion and Commitment is commendable. Our Recruiting Posters seem to imply that Whites need not apply, and the main consideration is MONEY!The emphasis of our recruitment program seems to center on Salary. Join and you get a high paying job and you can make a "Difference". The definition of "Difference" is ambiguous and it is unclear as to whom this "Difference" will effect, and what this "Difference" is. Does this mean that the current Police Force is Not making a "Difference"? Then again, I guess if the Chicago Police Department is filled with Racists; well what should we expect? Our Recruitment Posters should simply say: "Hey Bro, if YOU want to make some Green come join our Blue Machine!" Never mind the concept of Vocation vs. Job, that is too complicated for our new Mercenary Occupation Force. Baby"G"

Plano PD is a suburb of Dallas and hiring as well. Plano pays a lot more and is a much safer city to work (about 3-5 murders per year) We have at least one CPD guy so far and he's a great guy. Send more down. I can assure you that you can leave the snow shovel behind. It was 75 on Tuesday.. Ya'll stay safe, praying for all you folks on the front line in Chicago.

Dallas' pension is as bad or worse than Chicago.

The upside is that cities like Austin will recognize and reward you for being active duty and not punish you like Chicago does.

Worked in Oklahoma for 9 years. Knew lots of DPD officers. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend you consider suburban DFW area departments before you EVER consider DPD. As others have said, pension there is also very problematic.

But if you decide to go - Texas is a whole other country !!! Get ready for big changes.

Their pension is fucked up because they were allowed to take out lump sums.

And, theyre on a "change" kick just like Chiraq.

In short, Dallas sucks too. It's not J.D. Tippit's department anymore.

Talk to a Leo in Austin the other day. After 25 years, 75% pension. 75k a year for the rest of your life seems pretty liveable.

• Chicago is known to have the best trained border collies used to corral restless herds. No bite, No wrangling, just chase them.

Key word - Diversity.
Plenty of able-bodied Texans available in DFW already applied and are being weeded out.
If you wind up down there and are disqualified, try looking for a PBR rodeo clown position...plenty of spots always available.
If you're going to get hurt on the job, do it in nice weather.

The ultra liberal virus has struck Dallas. Too many mentals from California and Washington moving to Dallas. Chicago is already at the pinnacle of the virus and the journey was harder than arriving at the destination. Dallas is on that journey now. On the wrong train on the wrong track.

Search out a Dallas Officer or easier to find former one. I have spoken to several. Each stated the moral there is worse than here, the local govt treats them horribly and pay attention, there have been more Officers attacked and shot on the south. It's not good here but the grass isn't always greener elsewhere. Stay safe stay vigilant

Someone mentioned the focus on diversity.... I applied to Dallas and was turned down. College educated, passed every segment of the hiring process, background completed no issues... Rejection letter. Not sure if I can or should blame my lack of "diversity" but it's possible.
Currently in the process for CPD.
