DALLAS – Dallas Police Department headquarters is re-opened after emergency crews responded to the discovery of a suspicious package at an entrance to the building Monday morning.

The package was found about 9:30 a.m. at the north entrance of Jack Evans police headquarters at 1400 S. Lamar Street. All Dallas police personnel were asked to move to a safe location in the building, according to Dallas Police Sgt. Warren Mitchell.

Lamar Street and Belleview Street, near the building, were blocked off as an explosives truck, along with other emergency responders, investigated. Dallas Police officers and personnel were moved to a location away from the area.

Dallas police tweeted just before noon that hazmat crews had removed the package, which was determined to be harmless.
