 About the CCPD

Why was the District Started?

In the 1980s, Fort Worth experienced double-digit increases in criminal activity and had the highest crime rate in the United States for two years. By 1993, legislation was amended to allow municipalities in counties with a population of one million or more to create a crime control district through the election process. In 1995, the citizens of Fort Worth voted to establish a Crime Control and Prevention District (CCPD), and the District has been renewed by voters in 2000, 2005, 2009, and 2014 for subsequent five-year periods.  Fort Worth's Part I Crime Rate has declined 40% since 1995, while population has continued to increase.

What does CCPD Fund?

Revenue from the ½ cent sales tax serves a role in providing the necessary resources to effectively implement crime reduction strategies pertaining to enhanced enforcement, neighborhood crime prevention, partner programs, recruitment and training, and department equipment, technology, and infrastructure.  These strategies may include deploying officers on an enhanced basis to respond to emerging problems, supporting citizen participation and crime prevention programs, replacing vehicles and other equipment critical to crime control, increasing security at schools, and/or providing an adequate number of officers throughout Fort Worth’s neighborhoods--just to name a few. The CCPD's approved budget for the 2016 fiscal year is $86,002,513.

Who Manages the District?

The fund is administered by the Fort Worth Police Department, and it is managed by a nine-member Board of Directors that establishes the annual budget and policies, oversees expenditures, and evaluated programs funded by the district.
