Dallas Police traffic enforcement citations are down sharply, according to records obtained by NBC 5 in a public information request.

For instance, in May 2018 police wrote 7,625 citations compared with 17,462 in May 2013 -- a decline of 56 percent.

In 2013 police recorded 161,905 citations, but wrote just 108,003 in 2017 -- a decline of 33 percent. Partial information for 2018 showed additional decline.

Dallas City Council member Mark Clayton said he sees more drivers running red lights, and suspected traffic enforcement had declined. He said police clearly have higher priorities, like violent crime, which has been declining in Dallas, but he wants traffic enforcement too.

Dallas PD is 400 officers short.The PD has not been able to fill an academy class. Starting salary in near by Plano is $15k higher. $11k higher in Ft Worth. This is the Dallas Mayor and city council work. They have a vision for Dallas it doesn`t include the Police Dept.
