The Fort Worth Police Department plans to soon release a statement via @fortworthpd on the shooting deaths of five police officers in Dallas last night at a protest to condemn the recent police-involved deaths of two black men in other cities. Planned protests in Fort Worth – nightly in Sundance Square and Sunday night at Justice of the Peace Court 8 on Miller Avenue – will go on as scheduled, said FPWD spokesperson Sgt. Marcus Povero.
Security will be heightened, he added.
“We have officers working overtime to bolster patrol, and officers will be riding in two-person units,” Povero said via e-mail.
