Fort Worth officials call press conference on video; Mayor issues statement

🕐 1 min read

Mayor Betsy Price released a statement on the video earlier today: “I’ve been actively listening to the numerous messages from concerned citizens (and non-citizens alike) about the incident depicted in a video involving one of our Fort Worth Police Department officers. As a mother and a grandmother, one of my primary concerns is always for children who are oftentimes the most vulnerable in conflict … There is an investigation underway that will ensure justice and transparency.

I’m grateful for the strong working relationship we have in our city between officers &citizens. We will not support behavior that diminishes the safety of our citizens nor the reputation of one of the finest police departments in the nation.”

A press conference will take place at 2 p.m. today, Dec. 23, 2016, outside of the City Council Chamber on the second floor of City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St.

The purpose of the conference will be to provide information and updates on the ongoing investigations surrounding the incidents captured on the Dec. 21 video. The following officials are scheduled to appear:

• Mayor Betsy Price

• FWPD Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald

• US Representative Marc Veasey

• Commissioner Roy Brooks

• State Representative Nicole Collier

• Councilmember Kelly Allen Gray

Councilmember Gyna Bivens
