A new class of Panther City Peacemakers was recognized for their service by the Fort Worth City Council.
The Fort Worth police officers and community members completed a 10-week, 40-hour course on mediation. The goal of the program is to establish a way for community and police to engage in talks that could help improve community relations. The Peacemakers could potentially be used in a crisis situation to speak to fellow community members and to help calm tense situations.
Another Peacemakers class will be scheduled in the future.
