DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall is on a medical leave-of-absence, recovering from recent surgery.

Last night, the Police Department issued a statement for reasons described as "clarity and perspective." 

The statement says that after Hall's mother died last year, the Chief went in for a check-up in January. Although the reason is not given, doctors then scheduled what is described as "major surgery" this week. 

No one in the Dallas Police Department is saying when Hall might return to work. 

Executive Assistant Chief David Pughes is in command during Hall's absence
