DALLAS TEXAS - The Dallas Police Department says job applications to the force have more than quadrupled since a sniper shot and killed five police officers and wounded nine others and two civilians.
A Police Department statement Friday says 467 applications were received in the 12 days after the July 7 shootings during what had been a peaceful protest of recent police shootings of black men. That's an average of 38.9 per day. It's a 344 percent increase over a comparable period in June.
