Dallas Police Department officials say the number of applications they receive for potential new officers has tripled since the July 7 shooting that killed five officers and injured another nine. The department wrote on its Facebook page that it received about 11 applications per day from June 8 to June 20. Dallas Police Chief David Brown said in a press conference after the shooting, “We’re hiring. Get off that protest line and put an application in. We’ll put you in your neighborhood and help you resolve some of those problems.” Now, it is receiving about 40 applications per day. The shooting in Dallas was the deadliest day for American law enforcement since Sept. 11, 2001.
