Meet HBCU Alum Renee Hall - First Woman Chief of the Dallas Police Department (371 hits)

Chief Reneť Hall is a highly accomplished and experienced law enforcement executive with more than 20 years as a public servant. She was appointed Chief of the Dallas Police Department in 2017, becoming the first woman to ever lead the organization. Prior to her appointment as Chief, Hall served as the Deputy Chief of the Detroit Police Department.

Chief Hall has made significant strides to advance the nationís ninth largest police department. Her vision, aligned with 21st Century Policing, focuses on the reduction of crime, increasing recruitment and retention, providing new opportunities for officer career development, modernizing the organizationís effectiveness through enhanced technology, and she is committed to improving and nurturing community relationships.

Under Chief Hallís leadership, there was a 5.7 percent reduction in overall crime in 2017 and a 5.97 percent reduction in violent crime in 2018. The department implemented new technology with Dallas On-Line Reporting System (DORS) and Text to 911. One of her latest accomplishments includes, the departmentís launch of the Starlight program, a 6-month proof of concept that allows officers to use state-of-the-art cameras and lighting to capture crime in real time. Additionally, the iWatchDallas App was relaunched. iWatch is a tip application that allows users to download the app on any cell phone and submit information, video or pictures to law enforcement.

Chief Hall along with her leadership team worked with city leaders to increase the starting salary of officers, restructured the civil service exam and conducted on-site recruiting and testing in cities like New York and Chicago. These efforts led to the Dallas Police Department recently accepting the largest academy class in the history of the department.

With officer wellness and development as a priority, morale continues to improve through the implementation of health and wellness fairs and the opening of a new gym located at police headquarters. Chief Hall continues to look for innovative ways to inspire and motivate officers to be their very best physically and mentally and spiritually.

Chief Hall prioritizes community engagement and outreach by regularly connecting with officers in the field, meeting with Dallas community groups, professional leaders, and local organizations. Chief Hall spearheaded the City of Dallasí restructuring of the Community Police Oversight Board, as well as the police departmentís first Youth Summer Jobs program, that allowed business leaders and community stakeholders to capture at-risk youth through workforce development.
Her educational accomplishments include completion of the FBI National Academy, Major Cities Chiefs Executive Leadership Institute (PELI IV), two Masters of Science degrees in Security Administration and Intelligence Analysis, from the University of Detroit Mercy, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Grambling State University.

Chief Hall is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, The International Womenís Forum (IWF), Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCCA), National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE), International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).
