Dallas is all set to get a new police chief. A woman is all set to be appointed for the post. This will be the first time that a woman will grace the post of Dallas Police chief.
There are reasons to believe that Detroit Deputy Chief Ulysha Renee Hall is set to be hired as the Dallas Police chief. Things are almost confirmed, with Ulysha Renee Hall making a formal statement expressing her happiness and gratitude for being picked up for the job.
In a statement released to the media, Ulysha Renee Hall said, “I am honored to be chosen to lead the Dallas Police Department at this critical time in its history…I look forward to building on the successes of the past, preserving community trust and ensuring the safety of our officers and the entire Dallas community.” Her selection was reportedly made by none other than City Manager T.C. Broadnax
While talking about picking up Ulysha Renee Hall as Dallas Police chief Broadnax confesses that it was a rather tough choice to make. “It was a difficult choice…but I believe Renee Hall will be a dynamic chief…Chief Hall is a proven leader with a stellar background…These are qualities I believe are critical as we tackle crime to make our city safer while addressing organizational and policy issues within the department”, Broadnax added
It should be kept in mind that the post of Dallas’ chief has been vacant since October, when Chief David Brown retired from the department. The department was being managed by Assistant Chief of Police David Pughes.
It is yet to be seen as to how Renee Hall will manage the department from where at least three people had applied for the job she has been chosen. The ones who had applied for the chief’s job included Deputy Chiefs Malik Aziz and Rick Watson and Assistant Chief Gary Tittle.
A report in DallasNews says, “Aziz, who has been a finalist in several other cities, was a favorite among officers to become the next chief. He had no comment Wednesday about the chief selection”.
