DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – The Dallas Police Association is facilitating COVID-19 testing for its officers amid a recent spike in cases statewide and across the metroplex.
DPD is anticipating more positive tests but Mata says its best to get an idea now of how rampant if at all the virus is within the department.
“Just like in the public,” said Mata. “The more people you have tested, the more positive results you’ll get. But I spoke to city leaders and Chief Hall and everyone would like to know what the number is now and get those people quarantined from the department.”
Mata said 600 Officers or their significant others registered to be tested this week. He expects hundreds of additional walk-ins.
