DALLAS (TIP): Last month, Dallas police detectives began partnering with FBI agents to investigate the city’s most violent crimes. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Dallas Police Department and Garland Police Department publicly announced Thursday, November 14, the formation of the Dallas Violent Crimes Task Force.
The agencies will work together to bring federal prosecution to violent offenders, meaning harsher penalties in many cases. The task force will focus its resources on the most violent crimes including shootings, kidnapping and extortion. “Dallas police detectives with FBI agents will use a full range of contemporary tools and ground breaking investigative strategies to bring prolific violent offenders to justice,” said Dallas Police Chief David Brown Thursday morning.
