Chief's Advisory Board
The “New” Police Chief's Advisory Board (CAB) was re-established in 2017 under the direction of the Chief of Police. The board was created to act as a community resource for the Chief in the formation of strategies, development of community policing concepts and increasing public awareness. The Chief's Advisory Board is not a review board of specific police actions, whether internal or external, but a forum for discussions concerning community concerns and leveraging the experience of persons outside of policing to benefit the Department and the community. The primary purpose of the Chief's Advisory Board is to provide a forum with key stakeholders regarding law enforcement policies within the community and is comprised of a diverse cross-section of community leaders representative of the City of Fort Worth. The imagination of all members drives the board and reflect holistic views that serve as catalysts for the integration of community viewpoints into police department planning/strategies.

Fort Worth PD: Where the West Begins

New Patrol Boundaries Effective August 19th

Since 2000, Fort Worth has added approximately 140,000 people and 39 square miles north of Loop 820. Because population and development continue to increase at a rapid pace, a new police patrol division and a new facility is necessary. On August 19, the Fort Worth Police Department added a new patrol division and realigned the existing five patrol division's boundaries. A new patrol division facility on N. Riverside Drive is expected to open in early 2018. Each of the six patrol divisions include two districts and multiple beats. Patrol staff assigned to the new North Division will operate out of existing patrol facilities until the new patrol facility is open.

Below are links to maps of the new divisions, districts, and beat boundaries.

Community Camera Program
As crimes occur nearby, residents are not always aware that their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.

Residents and businesses across the city can register their privately owned surveillance camera systems. Download Pamphlet or Register your cameras now.
