Leaked Dallas PD Memo Telling Police to Ignore Some Calls Worrying

         A controversial Dallas PD memo that tells police to ignore certain emergency calls has been leaked, causing quite an upset for locals according to a KPRC Radio article from January 4th. In it they say:


After hiring a new police chief from California, a leaked memo from the top law enforcement officials in Dallas says officers will no longer respond to stolen cars, criminal mischief, reckless damage, runaway kids and child custody escalations, among other offenses.”


          If that sounds worrying, that’s because it is. Though, the Dallas PD was quick to point out that the memo is not going into effect for now, as it simply details a draft of their plan according to a Fox 4 article from January 4th. In it they say: 


A leaked Dallas Police Department memo is drawing criticism from the governor and others in law enforcement for outlining certain crimes that police will investigate, but no longer be dispatched to if there’s a 911 call. The department says the memo is only a draft. The memo, citing more than a dozen types of calls that officers will no longer be dispatched to, is being called ‘premature’ in a post made on the department’s social media accounts, but it’s not off the table.”


          So to be clear; nothing is set in stone and police will still be investigating the crimes in question.
