Dallas City Council Committee says DPD Report on Protest Response Lacks Transparency

DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – Members of the Dallas City Council’s Public Safety Committee believe a recent report from the Dallas Police Department on its response to May protests and riots lacks transparency.

The report comes after allegations from protesters of excessive force by Police. Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall acknowledged during a special called committee meeting on Tuesday that the department made errors in its communication and planning.

“Transparency breeds corrective behavior,” Chief Hall said.

But the council said the report lacks detail about the use of tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters.

“There’s not enough information in this After Action Report,” Councilman Omar Narvaez said.

“I think that this report is also too little, too late,” Councilman Adam Bazaldua insisted.

Chief Hall assured the Committee the department is working to correct errors exposed in the report. She said Police continue to investigate allegations of improper use of non-lethal weapons like tear gas and pepper balls.
