Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown has fired or disciplined 27 officers and employees in the last year. And every time he brings down the hammer, he announces it on Facebook and Twitter, specifying exactly who the men and women are and what they did. On Dec. 30, it was five officers and a 911 call operator.
The social media posts aren’t an official policy of the DPD, but rather a “push for transparency” initiative, in Lt. Geron’s words. “[It comes from] a desire to be more transparent and to get our message out to the greater community,” he says.
And dont get me started on facebook
So what say you, ATS? Is it okay to publically name and shame these wayward employees for DUI's, domestic violence, shooting an unarmed person that is being turned over for investigation to the DA? In a case like the last, for instance, it would be wise for the named and shamed to remain silent. All of them, in fact, until their cases are handled.
Interested in hearing your opinons.

You bring one great aspect into it that I realky appreciate, and that is, it lets his agency know where he stands, no B.S., no taking anything. He makes himself very clear.
The funny thing is, 27 employees in a year, it doesn't seem they are taking him too seriously, or he has a crap hiring staff/policy, or, these people are really good liars! That seems like a really high turn over in one year for some corrupt employees, or, is it just me?
I am glad to see he is making a stance, though, and not being a *part* of the corruption.
