DALLAS — There will be more operators answering your 911 calls in Dallas.

The City Council has approved a new $2.8 billion budget that will pay for 10 additional call-takers at the Dallas 911 center.

The budget also funds additional training for workers who are already employed.

The city's emergency call center has come under fire for slow response to some crime and fire calls.

On the streets, the spending plan adds enough money to pay for 20 new police officer positions.
