A plan to hire hundreds of new Dallas police officers at once may not happen, according to a memo from Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings.
Rawlings sent a note to City Council members Monday night, saying the plan to hire 549 new officers may be phased in over a three-year period.
The mayor says this new proposal may be more sustainable as the city works to increase the number of officers.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The hiring plan would cost more than $20 million.
Dallas City Manager A.C. Gonzalez is expected to update the City Council on hiring plans next week.
