Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban announced his donation of $1 million to Dallas Police Wednesday morning in light of the Orlando mass shooting.
According to WFAA, the money is intended to help Dallas PD with “enhanced counterrorism efforts” and increase police presence in Dallas neighborhood Oak Lawn. It will go toward approximately 16,000 hours of police overtime.
“These funds will be used primarily to protect the LGBT community,” said Dallas PD chief David Brown. “We will earmark and track the expenditure of these funds to ensure its effective use in creating a safe environment.”
