We're absolutely thrilled to have hosted the 6th session of Girl Talk in collaboration with Girl Scouts Dallas today at DPD headquarters. It was an afternoon filled with inspiration and empowerment.

Detective Watson and Ms. Laymance from the Narcotics Division and Vice Unit delivered an eye-opening speech on fentanyl awareness and human trafficking. They truly shed light on crucial issues.

In addition, we had four remarkable female employees from different units participate in a panel discussion about careers in law enforcement. Their insights were invaluable.

Our participants also enjoyed a Fusion Unit visit, a vendor tour, and an engaging physical session with our outstanding Recruit Unit and Explorer Program.

A huge thank you to our dedicated staff, our wonderful vendors, and all the amazing young ladies and parents who spent this meaningful afternoon with us. Together, we're shaping a brighter future! 🌟👮‍♀️
