DPFP serves to provide retirement, death and disability benefits to the City of Dallas police officers and fire fighters. DPFP has approximately 10,000 members and $2 billion in assets.

The last few years have been a time of turmoil and transition for DPFP. The Texas Legislature passed, and the Governor signed House Bill 3158 on May 31, 2017, the amendments in HB 3158 set DPFP on a path to solvency with anticipated full funding by 2061. With the new legislation, DPFP has a new governing Board of Trustees made up of 11-members that were recently fully seated in October 2017.

The CFO is a member of the Executive Team and is expected to be a strategic contributor and collaborator with the Executive Director and other members of the Executive Team and staff in carrying out the work and short and long-term goals of the organization.
