Fort Worth city officials and representatives of the police department broke ground Tuesday (Oct. 11) on the department’s new South Patrol Division headquarters at 3501 W. Risinger Road.
Construction of the 31,000-plus-square-foot facility begins this month and is expected to completed by December 2023. The $20 million project was approved for funding as part of the city’s 2018 bond program with additional funds provided by the Crime Control & Prevention District.

The facility will house more than 200 law enforcement personnel, Williams said, including South Division patrol officers, neighborhood police officers, detectives, Code Blue community volunteers, the bike unit, and division administration.
