Dallas Police Praised for Community-Policing Approach Protests were peaceful Thursday in Dallas before shooting broke out. The Dallas Police Department had been posting pictures of the demonstrations on Twitter, including one of officers smiling alongside a protester. The department is well regarded for its relationship with the community it serves. In recent years, Dallas PD has taken a community policing approach, and they credit that approach with a decrease in excessive force complaints and arrests. Community policing has been adopted in cities across the country, especially since President Obama formed a task force to push that approach following the chokehold death of Eric Garner in 2014. Will this week’s events alter the community-oriented approach of police departments across the US?
