By Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - The Dallas Police Department, which was struggling to recruit officers, has seen a surge in job applications after the ambush shooting this month that killed five officers and brought global attention to the Texas city, officials said on Friday. During the 12 days following the July 7 shooting, the department said it got 467 job applications, a 344 percent increase compared with the 136 in a similar period in June. That is an average of 38.9 requests per day to become a police recruit compared with an average of 11.3 submissions a day for 12 days in June. Potential officers in the north Texas region have often opted for departments in fast-growing cities surrounding Dallas where starting pay is typically higher than in Dallas.

The remains of an unidentified person were found late on Saturday inside a charred vehicle in the path of the so-called Sand Fire near Santa Clarita, about 40 miles (65 km) northwest of the city, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.
