Hello, My name is Rosalinda Mendoza, the new Crime Prevention Specialist for FWPD North Division.
Fort Worth , a beautiful city where cowboys and culture go hand in hand, with it wealth of history in the cattle industry, the art museums, Japanese gardens, the Botanical gardens, Sundance Square, the Stockyard’s area, the air show at Meacham field, Casa Mañana, along with many other interesting places has drawn visitors from near and far for many years. I loved Fort Worth then and even more so today. North Fort Worth has been a part of my family since my youth. I well remember visiting my aunt, uncle and spending time with my cousins in a portion of Fort Worth lovingly called “La Loma” (the hill).
In my spare time I volunteer for CASA, (Court Appointed Special Advocate) assisting children of all ages who through no fault of their own find themselves placed in homes of strangers, who have to be away from their parents, who have to attend new schools, who are hurt, afraid and alone. As a CASA advocate I walk with them through the legal maze, attend court hearings and speak to the judge on their behalf. I remain by their side until they are either returned to their families or are adopted. I also serve as a rape crisis counselor for our local Women’s Center located on Hemphill Street. I believe it accurate to say that assisting members of our community is in my blood and definitely in my heart.
My responsibilities as the Crime Prevention specialist include meeting with you and your neighbors to discuss topics on how to better secure homes, autos from being targeted by criminals intent on removing your personal property and how to exercise caution when out alone in the neighborhood. This is just a small example of what I would like to share with you and your neighbors. But we can discuss that topic in more detail when we meet.
I look forward to meeting each of you soon.
