The Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police Department has multiple job openings offering up to $5,000 in bonuses.

DART is looking to fill the following roles:

  • DART Police Officer
  • DART Fare Enforcement Officer
  • DART Police Telecommunicator
  • DART Apprentice Police Telecommunicator
  • DART Camera Monitor

The Fare Enforcement role comes with a $2,000 hiring bonus, while the police officer role offers a $5,000 bonus.

The bonuses will be paid in two parts, with the first installment as part of a worker’s first paycheck. The second installment will be paid only after completing field training.

As of August 11, the Camera Monitor listing was open until August 15. The Police Officer, Fare Enforcement Officer, and Telecommunications listings are available until August 22.

The job listing for Apprentice Telecommunications will be open until the position is filled.

The Apprentice Police Telecommunicator role is only open to people that are not certified communicators under the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE). Applicants that are TCOLE-certified should apply for the Telecommunicator position.

The annual salary for a police officer ranges between $70,000-$103,421, depending on experience, according to the DART Police Job Listings. The other jobs’ salaries also depend on the candidate’s previous experience and education.

No one in their right mind would be a cop at any level in Dallas. Woke city with a highly racist, anti- White city council.
