Dallas police are also gearing up. Commanders have been busy in recent days planning for extra staffing and security ahead of the Pride Week events and the Sept. 18 parade. After several months of violent assaults in that area – several of which Dallas police are officially investigating as hate crimes – police say new strategies in recent months have helped keep criminals away.
