Overview


The Bartonville Crime Control and Prevention District (BCCPD) is a special purpose district that was created in May 2010 to provide the opportunity to initiate a one-quarter percent sales and use tax to finance the district, upon voter approval. The purpose of the District is to enhance the capability of law enforcement and to further crime prevention programs through the acquisition of personnel, new equipment and technology for the police department.

In 1989, the Texas Legislature recognized that smaller cities within large metropolitan areas are greatly impacted by "big city" crime without the "big city" resources to fight crime problems they face. The Legislature passed the Crime Control and Prevention District Act to enable cities to create a special district that can collect a sales tax specifically dedicated to crime control and reduction.

The BCCPD is governed by a Board that is selected by the Bartonville Town Council. The Board is responsible for monitoring the fiscal accountability as well as the effectiveness and efficiency of the BCCPD plan and budget.

The projected amount of annual sales tax revenue for FY 2016-2017 is $36,000. Funds collected have allowed for the purchase of a police vehicle, uniforms and equipment for officers, computer software programs, testing, training, assessments, and the National Night Out event.
