Still, Ron Pinkston, a senior corporal who is president of the Dallas Police Association, said the group had better communication with Kunkle.
Pinkston said the DPA initially tried to work with Brown, who started out saying the association's issues were his issues.
"Those first several years, we were constantly supporting the chief," Pinkston said. "He was new, and we wanted it to really work."
And Pinkston said he personally doesn't have a problem with Brown. "I like Chief Brown," Pinkston said.
Pinkston said the uneasy marriage began to deteriorate in October 2013 after Brown fired Officer Cardan Spencer for shooting a mentally ill man who had a knife in a Rylie cul-de-sac in far southeast Dallas.

Still, DPA president Ron Pinkston says as police-community tensions grow nationwide, "life and safety" of officers and their families are paramount. "We are all about transparency," he said, "but there is no value in releasing the names of officers except to fringe groups that use it to target police and their families."

But Ron Pinkston, president of the Dallas Police Association, said he sees other needs that are not met as well as out-of-whack priorities.
The recent approval of two new assistant chief positions annoyed officers who feel like they need help on the ground in the growing city, Pinkston said. Last year, the department hired below the attrition rate, which is an average of about 200 departures a year because of firings, deaths, resignations and retirements.
Last year, police budgeted to hire 165 officers. The proposed budget calls for 200 officers this year. But that's still not enough, said Pinkston, who believes the number will once again be outpaced by attrition.
Pinkston said morale among police officers is extraordinarily low and officers aren't responding to calls quickly because they are "beaten down."
"They're fed up with no one having their backs," Pinkston said.
The increase started subsiding after police used gobs of overtime to keep police presence high and to respond to 911 calls, which Pinkston said shows the need for more officers.
