According to Wikipedia, The Dallas Police Department, established in 1881, is the principal law enforcement agency serving the city of Dallas, Texas.

The department is headed by a chief of police who is appointed by the city manager who, in turn, is hired by the Dallas City Council. 

The city manager is not an elected official.

Primary responsibility for calls for police service are seven operations divisions based on geographical subdivisions of the city. 

Each operations division is commanded by a deputy chief of police. The divisions are designated Central, Northeast, Southeast, South Central, Southwest, Northwest and North Central and operate from facilities which are referred to as substations. 

Each operations division’s geographical area is further subdivided into sectors which are composed of beats, each of which is normally patrolled by a uniformed officer or officers in a squad car. 

Calls for service are received primarily through the city’s 9-1-1 system which is answered by a city-operated emergency communications center. 

Each substation also has an investigative unit with detectives who are assigned cases of burglary and theft which are committed within the area covered by their division.

Other crimes are investigated by specialized investigative units including the Child Abuse Squad, Family Violence Squad, Narcotics Division, CAPERS [Crimes Against Persons] Robbery, Assault, and Homicide Units, Forgery Squad and a Computer Crimes Team.

A specialized Tactical Division includes a SWAT Operations Unit, Mounted Unit, Canine Unit, Helicopter Unit and an Explosive Ordnance Squad. 

The SWAT Operations Unit was featured on a reality series for the A&E Network in 2006 entitled “Dallas SWAT”.
