Part Two of our Dallas Police Department "Deep Nights" series follows rookie cop Jason Groom as he patrols the vast Dallas Downtown sector out of Deep Ellum's Central Station. In Part II we take a closer look at the homeless situation, which is all too real in the downtown sector. Each night, hundreds and hundreds of our fellow residents make their bed out of the grimy sidewalks that surround the local homeless shelters. Often these facilities are too crowded to take more clients.
This piece was filmed by four You+Dallas videographers over one weekend to get a personal look at Dallas crime and the men and women who fight it every day. Thanks to DPD Lt. Jim Greene for his help in coordinating the shoot; to Sgt. Isreal Herrera for a great voiceover (of both installments); and officer Jason Groom for his patience and honest answers.
