Dallas residents and business owners will have another chance to share their opinion on who should be the next chief of police.

City leaders will hold the last of three community meetings on Tuesday.  The meetings are aimed at hearing input about the current chief's replacement.

Tuesday's meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Walnut Hill Recreation Center on Midway Road.

Chief David Kunkle announced his retirement Nov. 12, 2009, after spending five years as the chief of police.

During Kunkle's tenure in Dallas, the city has seen major drops in crime. Last month, the city reported a nearly double-digit drop in crime in 2009 as compared to last year.

The city also saw a reduction in crime in 2008 that saw Dallas finally give up its distinction of having the country's worst big-city crime rate. In 2008, crime fell 10.3 percent compared to 2007.
