Accreditation from Texas Police Chief’s Association On February 7, 2018, the FWPD received the official approval of “Recognized” agency and is the largest department in the State of Texas to receive such an honor. The program is a vol- untary process where police agencies in Texas prove their com- pliance with 168 Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices. The best practices were carefully developed by Texas law enforce- ment professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effec- tive delivery of service, the reduction of risk, and the protec- tion of individual’s rights. Being “Recognized” means that the agency has proven that it meets or exceeds all of the identified best practices for Texas law enforcement. The best practices cover aspects of law enforcement operations such as use of force, protection of citizen rights, pursuits, property and evi- dence management, and patrol and investigative operations .
