Mayor Betsy Price : “We need your input on the future of fighting crime in Fort Worth”

FORT WORTH —  Do you have an opinion about how your city addresses crime? Do you feel the city is doing a good job in some areas, or maybe a poor job in others? If so, we want to hear from you.

Fort Worth remains one of the safest large cities in the nation thanks to our outstanding police force, citizen volunteers and our Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD).

The CCPD was created in 1995, and is funded by a half-cent sales tax dedicated to putting the resources on the ground to effectively reduce crime — especially violent crime, gangs and neighborhood crime. The CCPD also supports school and youth safety along with other police department enhancements.

All told, the CCPD generates more than $50 million each year in additional support for our public safety initiatives. That’s a big investment, and it’s crucial that the residents of Fort Worth have a chance to share their two cents about how that half-cent is spent.

So, how can you help shape the future of crime prevention in Fort Worth? It’s easy. Just take the online survey at: www.fortworthpd.com/CCPD/Survey. Your comments will form the foundation of the CCPD budget before it’s presented to the CCPD Board of Directors for approval on June 17.

This survey will be available to citizens through Friday, June 7.

Remember, “It’s You Fort Worth!” If you have something to say about how Fort Worth fights crime in your neighborhood, make you voice heard by completing this survey and letting us know what’s important to you.

We look forward to reading your submissions.
