DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Four weeks after an attack on Dallas Police Headquarters, windows pierced by a gunman’s bullets have yet to be replaced.
Plywood covers the space half a dozen glass panes once filled.
“The officers are disappointed that they haven’t replaced the glass. They haven’t put bulletproof glass up there…” said Dallas Police Association President Ron Pinkston.
A city of Dallas spokesperson told CBS11 it will take two to three more weeks and an estimated $11,000 dollars to replace the broken glass.
He could not say what type of windows would be coming in.
In addition to bulletproof glass at department headquarters, Pinkston has requested shatterproof film for substation windows, 24 hour surveillance cameras, and fenced in parking for officers.
“(The city will) probably tell you they’re waiting for bid proposals and all that, but if it’s a priority, they can get through that and get it done now,” said Pinkston.
In the meantime, he says, security continues to be a concern.
“We recently just had someone wandering through one of the substations just last week & they had to be ushered into the parking lot…” said Pinkston.
