  • FWPD Issues Statement On Stay At Home Enforcement

    Posted by Fort Worth ISD on 3/27/2020

    EDITOR'S NOTE: The following message is from the Fort Worth Police Department.ysh

    The Fort Worth Police Department has received numerous and false claims across our social media platforms indicating Fort Worth police officers are enforcing “stay-at-home” check points by pulling drivers over and asking for work documentation, etc.

    These claims are NOT accurate. The department is not and will not enforce these types of traffic stops. If an officer makes a traffic stop, it will be for an observed traffic violation or for investigation of another criminal offense.
