Groundbreaking Canceled The Feb. 27 groundbreaking has been canceled.

Construction of the Police Department’s sixth patrol division facility is scheduled to get underway in the next few weeks. A ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m., Monday, Feb. 27, at 8755 North Riverside Drive. Mayor Betsy Price, Councilmember Cary Moon and Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald will be on hand for the occasion.

The 23,000 square foot facility located near Alliance Town Center will be home to 110 officers and 13 administrative staff who will serve the growing population in north Fort Worth. A community meeting room is also included in the project.

The project is estimated to cost $14 million, and it is funded by the Crime Control and Prevention District.

The facility is expected to be finished in early 2018.

North Fort Worth is the fastest-growing part of the city, and response times to emergency calls are among the highest. The new facility will provide improved police services to the rapidly-growing area and create stronger community-police partnerships through increased police presence and public interaction.
