Why is this important?
Crimes against property includes arson, bribery, burglary/breaking and entering, counterfeiting/forgery, destruction/damage/vandalism of property, embezzlement, extortion/blackmail, fraud offenses, larceny/theft offenses, motor vehicle theft, robbery, and stolen property offenses. Suppressing crimes against property is one of the most important goals of the Fort Worth Police Department since it increases livability and adds to the city’s stature as one of the safest large cities.
In the past decade, Fort Worth has experienced a decrease in crimes against property. In FY2016, there were 46.8 crimes against property per 1,000 population, which is lower than the target of 58.2. The Fort Worth Police Department will continue to work toward lowering crimes against property to achieve suppression targets.
