Fort Worth Code Blue Program Gets a Boost

image_print

It wasn’t too long ago when crime in Fort Worth was a plague to the communities. And while violent crimes continue to be an issue, as Fort Worth continues to rank above national averages across the board, the Code Blue program has been a positive deterrent and has generally improved the safety of Fort Worth citizens, according to the experts at PCS Bail Bonds.

Code Blue was started by former Fort Worth mayor Kay Granger and former police chief Thomas Windham. The program incorporates citizens of the community, who have been given incentive by the high crime rates to make a difference, and partners them with the city of Fort Worth and the federal government to help reduce crime throughout the city’s neighborhoods.

The main fragment of Code Blue is the Citizens On Patrol (COPs) program, where members of the community volunteer their time to patrol neighborhoods and report suspicious behavior. The increased presence helps deter criminal activity and hastens police response time.

Earlier this month, it was announced that Code Blue was approved for a 40% budget increase, elevating their funding to over $1.0 million for fiscal year 2015. Over 700 volunteers are active members of Code Blue and the additional funds will go towards adding seven dispatchers to work with these volunteers, as well as advertising and recruiting to increase volunteer numbers.

According to current police chief Jeff Halstead, Fort Worth crime has dropped 40% since 1995, and the Code Blue program has played a part in that. PCS Bail Bonds has been providing bail bonds services throughout the Fort Worth community for over 25 years and have seen the changes. While admittedly crime is still a problem, having so many members of the Fort Worth community volunteer their time shows the commitment to addressing the issue.

Providing bail bonds services means we have a behind-the-scenes look at crime and the criminals that commit these offenses. PCS Bail Bonds is proud of the work Code Blue does to support a safe city and supports the increased funding they’ve received to continue their incredible work.
