PCS Bail Bonds (www.PCSBailBonds.com), Fort Worth, Texas’ most trusted bail bond service, is weighing in on the new police chief meeting with members of the Stop Six community.
Residents of Fort Worth were able to voice their opinions in a recent meeting with the new chief of police. The community and police officials came together in an effort to create a better relationship between residents and officers.

“This is a step in the right direction,” says Paul Schuder, Owner of PCS Bail Bonds. “There’s been too much of a disconnect with residents and the police force; not only in Fort Worth, but all across the country. We need to get back to viewing each other as peers who both want the best for our communities.”
Chief of Police Joel Fitzgerald specifically chose the Stop Six community as the location of the meeting because of the area’s problem with crime. Fitzgerald believes that if people see the police working to change their community for the better, it could help build trust amongst the residents and the local police.
“Fort Worth has many great communities, but there are also areas that do have more problems with crime than others,” Schuder admits. “In having the chief take the time to speak to residents, and more importantly, letting residents speak to him, hopefully something positive will come out of these interactions.”
Schuder goes on to say that the 20 plus years PCS Bail Bonds has been providing services to Fort Worth have been a time of growth and improvement for the city.
“We’re always changing. The city itself is changing, how we interact is changing, and continuously finding ways to engage with police officials is something that needs to remain a priority,” Schuder concludes. “No matter who has the title of police chief, it’s the job of the residents and of members of the police force to keep that dialogue open and ongoing.”
