Council Report: Crime Control and Prevention District funding approved

CCPD BUDGET

The Fort Worth City Council unanimously approved the submission of the 2019-20 Crime Control and Prevention District funding application (budget) of $87,865,000.

The next step is for City Manager Cooke to take the application before the CCPD Board of Directors on Aug. 20. The city council will then vote on final approval in September.

“It’s an historic budget, and we’ve come to depend on it in our police department,” District 7 Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem Dennis Shingleton said. “I think it’s necessary (the size of the budget), considering the growth of the city.”

The application includes five major initiatives that include joint efforts between sworn-in officers and civilians:

*Enhanced enforcements.

*Neighborhood crime prevention.

*Partners with a shared mission.

*Recruitment and training.

*Equipment, technology and infrastructure.
