Hello i'm from memphis and i've been offered a job with the Dallas police department. I want to know from you Dallasite what you all think about DPD. What do you all think about the department meaning the morale, the professionalism and the integrity of the department. I'm a single mother and of course the department there pays way more than the dpt here in memphis. Of course i've been excited yet a bit scared because all of my family is here in memphis and this city will be new to me and my little girls. I would really love to here what you all have to say. thank you so much in advance

I think it's like any other major PD, it has its good and bad officers.

The problem is you never hear about the good cops who do the right thing every day. You only hear about the bad ones.

I've personally met quite a number of DPD officers and they were all good guys and women.

I hear morale isn't too good, the Chief doesn't seem to mind burning his officers to save his in the media. There are plenty of good departments in the area, though. Grand Prairie, Garland, Farmers Branch, Irving to name a few.
