Dallas police will study how to patrol river woodlands through grant

"To be quite frank it's an area we had not spent a lot of time on in the past," Lawrence said, talking about the area surrounding the Trinity. Through the study, Lawrence says, the department will figure out "what safety looks like" for the Trinity.
