Dallas (WBAP/KLIF) – In a written column for RealClearPolicy, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson touted several Dallas public safety initiatives.

In the column titled, ‘We Must Make Policing Better Without ‘Defunding’ or ‘Dismantling,’ Mayor Johnson wrote that instead of talking about stripping funding from police departments for other programs amid an uptick in violent crime, local leaders nationwide should consider implementing solutions such as Right Care, Dallas Works, and programs recommended by his task force on safe communities.

Johnson wrote that “Cities and states can implement programs now that provide for equity, improve policing, and make us less reliant on law enforcement to solve every social ill.”
