Dallas deputies told not to fight crime

Posted on August 25th, 2011 No Comments

This Monday, sources revealed that officials with the Dallas County Constable’s Association ask deputies not to fight criminal activity in the city.

Texas deputy constables are licensed peace officers.  They are trained in how to address criminal activity and are certified to carry weapons.

However, after an incident involving a mother repeatedly asking a deputy to help her find her two kidnapped sons and him refusing, it was revealed that Precinct 1 has a “no-chase” policy.

President of the Dallas County Constable’s Association Renee Christian stated, “Those officers have been told — and I don’t know by which administrators — that if you see some criminal activity, turn your head. ¬†Handle your civil process.”

The Dallas County Constable’s Association met yesterday to address policies for deputies in the county.

If you have been wrongfully charged with a crime and are seeking to have the charge removed from your record, contact the Dallas expungement attorneys of The Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter at 214-845-7007 to learn more about how we can help you.
