#FortWorthSafe Strategy

Over the last year we have seen an unfortunate increase in violent crime in our community. In the month of April 2021 alone, we saw multiple shootings where innocent bystanders were caught in the cross-fire. As a community we need to stand together and fight for our city: this is OUR FORT WORTH. We must work together and show those who engage in this type of violent criminal activity, it will not be tolerated.
