Want to help pick the new Dallas police chief?

Now that Dallas police chief David Kunkle is ready to hit the road, the city is putting on a short traveling show to solicit "input from residents and business owners for the process of selecting a new police chief," or so says the release that showed up in our office today. Also in the release: "The next Police Chief will serve all of the diverse communities of Dallas, and it is extremely important that the City hears from those communities and knows what is important to them." Anyway, the meetings are Jan. 25 from 6-7:30 p.m. at City Hall, 1500 Marilla; Jan. 26 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Beckley-Saner Rec Center, 114 W. Hobson; and Feb. 2 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Walnut Hill Rec Center, 10011 Midway. As the release says, "Public input is critical in this process. YOUR opinion can make a difference in who the City hires as the new Police Chief." So there you have it.
