In 1948, members formed the Fort Worth Police Officers Association (FWPOA). While fraternal in nature, one of the main purposes of the new association was to organize and campaign for improved benefits for its members.
Since it’s founding, the Fort Worth Police Officers Association has continued to work tirelessly to improve benefits for all members. The FWPOA now represents over 1,700 members of the police department from the rank of Police Officer to Deputy Chief.
Annual activities sponsored by the FWPOA include a multitude of community events to engage with our citizens that our members serve.
The FWPOA was instrumental in securing private funding to build the new Fort Worth Police & Firefighters Memorial. The memorial honors fallen Fort Worth police officers and firefighters who have given the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives in the line of duty.
The FWPOA is the sole and exclusive bargaining unit for Fort Worth Police Officers during Meet & Confer contract negotiations and continues to be active in working to enhance police pay and benefits, insurance, and retirement benefits for all active and retired employees.
