About David O. Brown

David O. Brown Biography

After joining the Dallas Police Department in 1983 Brown worked in patrol divisions SWAT and internal affairs. He became first assistant chief of police in 2005; in 2007–08 he served as assistant city manager. He was appointed police chief in April 2010 and sworn into office on May 4 2010.
The New York Times reported that Brown has earned a national reputation as a progressive leader whose top priority is improving relations and reducing distrust between the police department and the city’s minority residents. He has advocated reducing the use of force and discouraged chasing suspects in cars and even by foot since such chases often lead to fatalities. According to published reporting he also has a reputation as a tough boss and has fought with the local police union over his emphasis on less-confrontational strategies and his willingness to fire officers often publicly. He has also sought to increase transparency by equipping officers with body cameras and sought to reform training on the use of lethal force. It has also been reported that some African American residents still feel they are subject to discrimination by the police.
Brown was chief during the 2016 shooting of Dallas police officers that killed five police officers and injured nine others and two civilians. He made the choice to use C-4 explosive delivered by a robot to kill the shooter Micah Xavier Johnson who was heavily armed and secured behind a brick corner with no safe way for police to rush Johnson or reach him with a sniper. The killing of Johnson was the first time in United States history a robot was used by police to deliver lethal force against a suspect.
