Construction of the Police Department’s sixth patrol division facility is scheduled to start in the next few weeks. Design of the facility is complete and removal of old buildings and fencing on the site is underway.

A ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. April 3 at 8755 N. Riverside Drive. Mayor Betsy Price, Councilmembers Cary Moon and Dennis Shingleton, and Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald will be on hand for the occasion.

The 23,000-square-foot facility 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 spring 2018.
