The Fort Worth Police Benevolent Association was founded in 1889 with one mission that holds true to this day: “to provide for it’s members in need.”
The Fort Worth Police Benevolent Association is a non-profit organization, created by police officers to serve the sworn members of the Fort Worth Police Department, both active and retired. The association provides death benefits to member’s survivors, as well as limited financial assistance to our members in need.
On Thursday, July 19, 1934, Fort Worth Police Benevolent Association filed as a Domestic Nonprofit Corporation in the State of Texas and is approximately eighty-one years old, according to public records filed with Texas Secretary of State. The filing is currently active as of the last data refresh which occurred on Tuesday, December 3, 2013.
In 1948, the members of the Fort Worth Police Benevolent Association voted to form the Fort Worth Police Officers Association. The Benevolent Association continued to serve its role of providing assistance to its members and their families, while the Police Officers Association’s role was to organize and campaign for improved benefits for its members.
