FORT WORTH -- The rejuvenation of a Fort Worth neighborhood included the reopening of a police storefront on Friday morning.
The Fort Worth Police Department invited the Cavile Place apartments and others in the Stop Six neighborhood to come tour the new storefront at 1401 Etta Street during the grand opening and dedication. The previous storefront was closed in 2014.
The Cavile Place apartments were built in 1954, but are now part of a long-term project to renovate and replace nearly 300 units with newer and nicer models. Acquiring land for gardens, parks, and new homes is included in the plan.
Officer LonNita Wiggins is the neighborhood officer and believes the storefront is a big step forward for the neighborhood’s improvements.
“They are going to know we are here, and we are part of this neighborhood,” she said. “It is a team effort. When you are familiar with officers, you are more likely to be proactive than reactive.”
