2018 FWPD Annual Report

Body Cameras and In-Car Video Integration (cont.)

As of December 2018, 453 patrol vehicles have received the new integrated in-car video system. The in-car video system is the latest generation and integrates with each officer’s body cameras, and when activated, it automatically activates the systems of other officers’ systems within range. The in-car video systems are being installed by Technology Services and Fleet Services with a goal of installing a total of 600 systems by the end of FY19. Community Camera Program The Community Camera Program is now accessible on the Fort Worth Police Department website: www.fortworthpd.com. Residents and businesses across the city can register their privately owned surveillance camera systems. The goal of the Community Camera Program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between FWPD and the community. As of December 2018, a total of 1,567 cameras have been registered. Citywide Camera Program The Citywide Camera Program began in 2017 with the initial purchase of over 170 cameras. The program was developed to enhance public safety and aid in suspected criminal investigations. Cameras are part of the City’s neighborhood improvement strategy project that includes the Stop Six and Ash Crescent areas. The department has funding for 100 additional cameras. Expanded WiFi Infrastructure The department expanded WiFi infrastructure to support the expanded camera, in-car video systems, and connectivity to City network. As of December 2018, thirty two access points at various City of Fort Worth facilities are fully operational allowing video uploads from body cameras and in-car videos to support operations, events, and investigations.
