2019 Annual Report

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
