The police department in Dallas is at a critical place as it works to fight crime while also repairing a broken trust with the community. To help these efforts, the city has hired U. Renee Hall as the department’s first female police chief.
Hall comes from the Detroit Police Department, where she served for more than 20 years and was most recently deputy police chief. She’s a legacy officer whose father died in the line of duty when she was only six months old. Today, she continues to do the work he set out to do.
