Public Relations Office

The Fort Worth Police Department introduced the police Public Relations Office in March 2010.  Located within the Office of the Chief of Police, the PRO staff consists of Public Information Officers and Public Relations Officers.

In addition to serving the media, the PRO’s mission is “Communicating Reliable Information and Providing Professional Service to the Organization and the Public.”

The PRO Staff is responsible for coordinating the department's three forums it holds throughout the year:    

  • Community Forums - Held by the Pro Staff where Police Department staff along with Council Members answer community questions and discuss what department changes five times a year.
  • Diversity Forums - A panel question-and-answer session with the public.  The concept of diversity encompasses both acceptance and respect.
  • Employee Forums -  The Chief engages in open dialogue and responded to questions directly from the employees of the Fort Worth Police Department.  In addition to discussing topics initiated by employees in attendance, discussion included Organizational Updates, the Five-Year Strategic Plan, Facilities Updates, Staffing Challenges, and Leadership.

For additional information or questions, contact the Chief's office at 817-392-4200.

The Police Department’s motto is “Service with Respect, Dedicated to Protect”.
