From the Chief I am pleased to present the Fort Worth Police Department 2019 Annual Report. This report highlights our department’s efforts to engage and support the community and summarizes our overall commitment to make Fort Worth one of the safest cities in the nation. In 2019, Fort Worth continued to experience a reduction in overall crime. The department evaluates and analyzes crime trends on a daily basis to provide the highest level of service. I was honored to be named your Chief of Police in 2019. While we experienced difficult challenges last year, I am dedicated to approaching each day as an opportunity for improvement. We are here to serve the community and maintain a department that serves to protect and respect everyone we encounter. FWPD held numerous community events throughout the year that focused on listening to your concerns, educating citizens on crime prevention, and providing our youth and others with important tools needed to be successful in school and in life. An example of this outreach includes the Badges With Books program, which is a collaborative initiative with the police department and Fort Worth Police Family Association’s Junior Police Academy. This report includes more details about initiatives and updates on other programs that are important to the department and the community, but it is only part of an entire story. To see more of what FWPD is doing, visit our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages. It has been an honor to work with the dedicated and professional staff within the Fort Worth Police Department and serve you each day. Message

Crime Control and Prevention District

The City of Fort Worth utilizes the Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD), a voter-approved half-cent sales tax, to fund crime prevention tools and programs. In response to Fort Worth having historically-high crime rates throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, residents of Fort Worth voted to establish the CCPD, and the District has been continued by voters in 2000, 2005, 2009, and 2014 for subsequent five-year periods. The purpose of CCPD is to enhance FWPD’s ability to create and maintain a safe environment through efficient, quality service, and strong community partnerships. The CCPD is overseen by a nine-member board of directors that establishes the annual budget, manages expenditures, and evaluates all programs funded by the district. The revenue from the half-cent sales tax funds 40 programs and critical resources to effectively combat and prevent crime in Fort Worth. The total CCPD budget in FY2019 was $82,893,917. The following numbers are for fiscal year 2019, which means the data is from October 2018 through September 2019.

HOPE Created On September 24, the Fort Worth City Council approved a new ordinance to help assist homeless individuals. As part of the new ordinance, the Homeless Outreach Program Enforcement (HOPE) Unit was created. HOPE will provide a more compassionate solution when working with homeless individuals and quality of life com- plaints. The HOPE Unit is part of the Central Patrol Division. The primary goal is to improve the quality of life in Fort Worth and connect homeless individuals to services and housing. The Fort Worth Police Department strives each day to improve and enhance our most important responsibil- ity, protecting the community. The following information provides updates on recent operational improve- ments. We’d like to give a special thank you to Col. David Dodd, US Army Ret. with Point 27, for donating 2700 'Shields of Strength' to the Fort Worth Police Department. We appreciate this gesture and his mission of strengthening and encouraging members of the Armed Forces, First Responders and their families.



FW INTEX Fusion Center In August 2019, the Fort Worth Intelligence Exchange (FW INTEX) Fusion Center (a unit within the FWPD’s Intelligence Section) was designated as the 8th fusion center in the State of Texas by Governor Greg Abbott and the 80th fusion center in the nation. What is a fusion center? It is a collaborative effort of two or more federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial (SLTT) government agencies that combines resources, expertise, or information with the goal of maximizing the ability of such agencies to detect, prevent, investigate, appre- hend, and respond to criminal or terrorist activity. A new shortcut to iWatchTX.org was put on Police and Fire computers. This is the Texas Suspicious Activity Reporting Network - iWatchTexas, where anyone can report suspicious activities or behaviors that may indi- cate criminal, terroristic, or school safety-related threats in our area and will be forwarded to the fusion cen- ter. Employees and citizens are encouraged to use this website to submit a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) to report activity related to:

Threat to Life Situations

School Threat Situations

Terroristic Threat Situations

Suspicious Activity

For more information, email intex@fortworthtexas.gov. Additionally, you can visit the FW INTEX website at https://fwintex.org. Stay safe!

Officer Hank Nava’s Patrol Unit Receives Permanent Home On December 1, 2005, Officer Hank Nava died from a gunshot wound he suffered two days earlier while serving an arrest warrant. During the funeral procession, Officer Nava’s Patrol Captain ordered Nava’s patrol car to be parked at the corner of Ellis Avenue and N. 25th Street. During this time, multiple people used a marker to write messages of thanks and sympathy on the patrol car. In 2007, the decision was made to loan the vehicle to the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum in Titusville, Florida. Almost 12 years later in August 2019, Nava’s patrol car returned to Fort Worth, and is permanently on display in the lobby of the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex.



FWPD provides multiple required training classes to all officers each year including procedural justice and leadership classes. The FWPD Bicycle Unit and Central Division hosted the International Police Mountain Bike Conference that included over 100 law enforcement officers from across America for training classes and events to discuss the latest best practices for police use of bikes. FWPD also hosted the Women in Law Enforcement conference in September. The purpose of the conference was to empower females in all areas of law enforcement. The LEO Class 6 graduated on October 11 adding trained officers on the streets of Fort Worth. LEO partici- pants are individuals with previous law enforcement experience.

-Charles Boswell (Race and Culture Task Force member)

I’m glad FWPD provides this as an eye opening course to help the community understand the perspective of FWPD. I think every FW citizen could benefit from a greater understanding of the vision of our police & to reduce misperceptions.

-Kate Hartfeld (Fort Worth community member)

Badges With Books The Fort Worth Police Bike Support Group is proud to sponsor Badges With Books, a collaborative initiative with the police department. Officers are able to provide books to children in their respective neighborhoods; the books are generously donated from members of the Fort Worth community. Officers are encouraged to provide a book to a child in their neighborhood, take a moment to discuss the last book the child read, and to

read a portion of the book with the child. Re- search shows that reading aloud to a child im- proves literacy and ensures the child is more likely to develop a love of reading on their own. On Oct. 2, Badges With Books provided 12 boxes of books for officers to provide to chil- dren. Decals of Badges With Books will be ap- plied to patrol cars.

FWPD Capital Projects The Rook The Rook was purchased with federal grant funds for the SWAT unit to keep officers and the community safe. It is a bullet-proof armored tactical vehicle that enables officers to approach a structure without cover- ing open exposed ground on foot. It can be utilized in numerous situations such as a hostage rescue, barri- caded suspects, a riot scene, or a natural disaster - it can also remove critical road hazard debris.


Mounted Patrol Improvements

Fort Worth Police Mounted Patrol celebrated the grand opening of a donated new state of the art covered arena. This all-weather training facility will allow the unit and others to participate in all types of training rain or shine. The Citizen Support Group helped make the facility possible and places the local unit at the fore- front of police mounted patrols.

2019 Technological Advancements

In order to support current and future operational needs, technological improvements must be as responsive and adaptive to change. The department must also continue to be progressive in cultivating relationships with internal and external stakeholders, to identify possibilities for public/private partnerships in support of technological enhancements. The Technology Services Section accomplishments include purchasing a robotic mapping station for the Traffic Investigations Unit and utilizing the radio and internet as a marketing tool for civil service testing. The “By the Numbers” on page 30 shows the successful work the Technology Services Unit did in 2019!

CAD and RMS Software Updates The Technology Services Section reviewed the department’s Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and Records Management Software (RMS) and completed an overall system upgrade to version 5.7.
