FWPD Demographics/Diversity Report

The Fort Worth Police Department publishes a quarterly demographic report as recommended by the City of Fort Worth’s Race and Culture Task Force. In 2017, the City Council appointed a 23-member task force to examine issues related to race and culture in Fort Worth. This data shows the demographics of the entire department as well as each unit. As the department endeavors to recruit a diverse workforce, we hope this data provides helpful and useful information.
