City Manager Blames Himself for Handling of Police Chief’s Absence. T.C. Broadnax tells The News’ Robert Wilonsky that he’s “gotta do a better job of communication,” particularly when Chief U. Reneé Hall suddenly disappears for an extended medical leave. She’s been texting South Dallas Councilman Adam Bazaldua about the troopers pulling people over in his neighborhood, which only raised more questions about what role she’s currently playing within the department. Broadnax says she is “OK” and “will come back when she’s 100 percent ready to come back.”

The call didn’t come through 911 or 311.
