Dallas police deny reducing standards for recruits

Posted: Updated:

The Dallas Police Department has denied allegations by the Dallas Police Association that the department is reducing standards for some recruit training.

The department also said it has launched an investigation to find out what officer made the false claims.

The Dallas Police Association on Thursday sent a letter to the Dallas city manager claiming a recruit had been allowed to keep taking academy driving tests over and over until the recruit passed.

The police union claimed the recruit should have washed out of the academy but did not. The DPA also made similar allegations about officers' firearm training.

Chief David Brown said the department investigated and the allegations are not only false, but that command staff is following academy and training policies closely.
