It wouldn’t be that difficult to put a chain link fence and gate around the parking lot.

This is so sad…..Dallas needs to fix this ASAP

It’s a simple solution that could make a world of difference. Like the Dalla Police Association said: does an officer need to be killed before someone takes this seriously?

Pray for them…then DEMAND local officials do something to fix this problem.
The DEMOCRAT MAYOR and DEMOCRAT majority City Council IS THE PROBLEM! It's time for Dallas citizens to abolish the 14-1 council of the inept and vote in a conservative, police friendly Mayor. Mike Rawlings is a complete JOKE and this lot should become secured using his salary.

That’s one way of getting the job done.
This is a damn shame. But we let the Mayor and City Council do it. We are fighting with the wrong team.

Aren't y'all the police? If someone is going to secure these lots, won't it be y'all?

No, dumb dumb. It would be the city council and other elected officials who vote on budgets to decide to put in appropriate fencing to secure the perimeter. If DPD had a police officer patrolling their lot protecting squad cars, how many people would b**ch and moan about how that’s a waste of taxpayer dollars?
The saddest part is it’s probably going to cost just as much – if not more – to fix the cars than it would be to put up fencing.
City of Dallas is more concerned with taking down statues than protecting its officers.

The southern border wall will be finished before sub stations are secured.

For the officers’ sake, hopefully this isn’t the case.
