Geographic Policing
Geographic Policing (or "Geo" Policing) involves the assignment of public safety service providers to defined geographic areas or beats. Whenever possible, officers are assigned to the same beat. This enables them to build relationships with area residents and partnerships with community organizations.

These partnerships build trust between local communities and police and give officers more insight when addressing recurring problems or recognizing developing trends in the area. Officers are able to actively involve citizens in the problem solving process and citizens are more comfortable with familiar officers.

Geo Policing also makes good business sense. Its structure requires a coordinated approach to problem solving by all ranks within the police department. That is, all levels of personnel participate to ensure that daily, short-term, and long-term concerns are addressed.

For instance, officers respond to traditional emergency incidents and use daily problem solving strategies in and around their beat. They work closely with the Crime Prevention Specialists to mobilize neighborhood watch groups and seek out resources needed to achieve long-term solutions. Shift Lieutenants share responsibility for all beats during a shift. However, they are specifically responsible for all short-term and long-term strategic planning and problem solving issues that may arise in their individually assigned beat. The Assistant Chief, with input from the Lieutenants, prioritizes problems across all beats for long range planning and allocates available resources to solve them. This ensures the most effective deployment of police resources.

We invite you to get to know the Lieutenant assigned to your geo beat, and to contact them directly with issues your community is facing. If you do not know which district you are in, please contact our non-emergency number at (817) 645-0972. Give the address you are calling about and the communicator will let you know what district you are in. Please remember that these are non-emergency numbers. For emergencies, please continue to dial 911.
