DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – Police Officers from across North Texas attended the first-ever ‘North Texas Law Enforcement Community Engagement Summit.’
The event at Fair Park brought criminal justice and law enforcement professionals from all over the region together to discuss best practices regarding community engagement strategies.
“Every contact is the beginning of a relationship,” said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, who spoke at the event. “It doesn’t matter if it’s the front line Officer, the detective or the 9-1-1 call taker. The question I have for my cops is what relationship are you beginning through your actions.”
Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson kicked off the summit with remarks to the Officers in attendance.
“Here we are,” said Johnson. “We’re here talking and coming together about how we can be effective in the community. That’s what we have to do.”
Breakout sessions were held with different leaders and organizations from around North Texas. Officers from Dallas, Plano, Grand Prairie and other cities participated.
