Panther's Rest: History of the Fort Worth Police Department 1873-21St Century
The history of the Fort Worth Police Department started in April 1873 and many factors brought about its existence at the confluence of the West Fork and Clear Fork of the Trinity River. The location along one of the major cattle trails, the Chisholm, brought about issues both political and financial in nature and had a definite affect on city fathers. This and other influences would be major factors in the development of the Fort Worth Police Department as it moved toward the 21st Century.
