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 voluntary process where police agencies in Texas prove their compliance with 168 Texas Law Enforcement Best Practices. The best practices were carefully developed by Texas law enforcement professionals to assist agencies in the efficient and effective delivery of service, the reduction of risk, and the protection 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 evidence management, and patrol and investigative operations .

National Initiative and Procedural Justice

The focus of the community component of the National Initiative (NI) is broad. It includes sharing information regarding the Department’s involvement with NI staff, discussing Procedural Justice (PJ) and explaining its mission, facilitating open discussions regarding implicit bias, hosting community listening sessions, and identifying the actions and opportunities to develop collaborative efforts that build trusting relationships between the community and police department in order to achieve mutual goals.
