Dallas Needs Cops. Houston's, Maybe.
So, the Dallas Police Department is trolling for officers -- in Houston, says here, which seems like a bad idea. Because, see, while Dallas needs about 350 new officers to swell its ranks to a reputable count, the Houston Police Department "has 400 to 500 officer vacancies, while the Harris County Sheriff's Department is short 140 deputies," according to the story from KPRC-Channel 2.
There are billboards around Houston, advertising the $10,000 signing bonus. Nonetheless, says the president of the Houston Police Officer's Union, it's all good: "We try to go and steal from other places too." Is that called coplifting? And have you tried the veal? --Robert Wilonsky
