Alliance for Children partnered with many local sponsors to host Picnic at the Park this Friday September 14, an event that helps give back to the community with dinner on the field at Globe Life Park cheering on our Texas Rangers. The North Richland Hills Police Association was able to help sponsor four very deserving families and present them with the opportunity to be a part of this very special evening. This should be an enjoyable night for the families and we are excited for them to get the chance to head out to this event.
Our agency has been blessed to develop a partnership over the last several years with Alliance for Children. Alliance for Children is a non-profit organization that helps victims of child abuse. They have partnered with local law enforcement agencies, Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Cook Children’s Medical Center and The Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office with the direct goal in mind to minimize the trauma of abuse, thus allowing the children and families to heal.

North Richland Hills Police finalize and implement body worn cameras – Axon is chosen.
The North Richland Hills police department is proud to introduce the Body Worn Camera Program. Cameras have been issued to all sworn officers, Public Service Officers and Crime Scene Examiners. The body worn cameras will provide an added layer of transparency and be a great benefit to the community and officers as we continue to work in partnership to keep our community safe.
State Legislature approved Senate Bill 158 that allowed departments to apply to receive grant funding to help support the cost of implementing body worn cameras. The North Richland Hills Police Department received approximately $94,000 that supported the implementation, with the remaining funds coming from the annual operating budget. The program was presented to the North Richland Hills City Council in November 2017, and the council authorized the North Richland Hills Police Department to enter in to a contract with Axon.
The public will notice the cameras on sworn officers, Public Service Officers and Crime Scene examiners as full implementation and training have been completed.
