Statement from Terrence Hopkins, President of the Black Police Association of Greater Dallas

We Stand in Support of Police Chief Hall

Dallas, TX - June 12, 2019 - The Black Police Association of Greater Dallas is firm and unwavering in its support of Police Chief U. Renee Hall. It is our belief Chief Hall has been under an orchestrated attack ever since her hire.  Chief Hall inherited one of the most volatile police departments and has done a stellar job attempting to steer its troubled ship.

I encourage the citizens of Dallas, the Dallas City Council, the City Manager’s Office, the Dallas City Mayor’s office and the police officers within the Dallas Police Department to continue to support Chief Hall, who has done nothing but attempt to make the proper changes to not only clean the Dallas Police Department but to promote it in a positive light.

The Black Police Association of Greater Dallas stands by its mission to advocate and promote justice and fairness for its police officers and surrounding communities.

We support Chief U. Renee Hall and will continue to stand beside her in making this city safer.
