Had some minor reports of wind damage (roof shingles and some damages, a pole down, and trampolines blown around). Also, a tractor trailer turned over in a retail parking lot that was occupied but both people were uninjured. Hope no one suffered any major damages. We continue to drive the neighborhoods to look for issues.

Captain Wid Spivey. End of Watch: March 12, 1955. Cause of Death: Heart Attack in Line of Duty.
On March 12, 1955, some 68 years ago, Captain Wid Spivey died in the line of duty while conducting a criminal investigation. As Captain Spivey was investigating a homicide, he began feeling ill and was rushed to a hospital. Unfortunately, Captain Spivey was pronounced deceased at the hospital. He had been with the White Settlement Police Department for two years and was serving as Acting Police Chief for Chief Aaron Stephens who was out of of town for business. His cause of death was determined to be a heart attack. Captain Spivey was the first officer to die in the line of duty at WSPD and was survived by his wife. We will never forget his service.

On the Job with Chief Cook featuring highlights from the past week including recognizing a community member whose quick actions saved a woman from drowning, a shout out to White Settlement ISD on recent athletic achievements and the pancake luncheon hosted by Brewer seniors, our city's new outdoor fitness center at Veterans Park, and a reminder to check out our Annual Report which was released to the community last Tuesday. We hope everyone enjoys the downtime of spring break and has a wonderful weekend!
We need to give a shout out to Dispatcher Adrianne Stewart who received her “Master Telecommunicator” license from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge and serves as one of our trainers in the Dispatch Services Center.
“Join us in congratulating Dispatcher Stewart on the achievement of this important milestone,” said Chief Cook. “We are certainly appreciative of the outstanding work that all of our communicators provide to our department and city.”
Please join Chief Cook in welcoming Officer Nathen Perez to our department. Officer Perez recently graduated the police academy with two other officers and has started his field training program. Here from his own words on why he joined WSPD:
“I have lived in Texas for a little over a year now and enjoyed living here very much. Growing up, I always admired the police officers that would visit our schools and serve the community. I was quickly inspired by the selfless men and women that would patrol the streets and take steps to build relationships and protect the community. My dream as a child was to become a police officer, and have a positive influence in the community that I served. I geared my life towards becoming a police officer, became a father, and as soon as a I finished my bachelor's degree in criminal justice, I applied to the great city of White Settlement. I was looking for a small city that I could have a positive impact in the community, and where I could build rapport with the those in the community. I whole-heartedly believe I can accomplish this goal while serving under the White Settlement Police Department. I look forward to meeting the citizens of White Settlement and establishing positive relationships with the community, and helping in any way I can!”
“We look forward to working with Officer Perez and expect to see him do great things,” said Chief Cook. “Welcome to the WSPD family.”
We recognized Maria Jensen, a community member who lives in White Settlement, at the City Council meeting. Mrs. Jensen was walking in the neighborhood on January 16, 2023 when she heard another woman screaming. As she went to investigate, she saw a woman who had fallen into the creek and appeared to be in distress and couldn’t swim. Mrs. Jensen summoned first responders and assisted the woman out of the water to prevent a drowning. “It’s acts like these that are worthy of recognition,” said Chief of Police Christopher Cook. “On behalf of our City Council, thank you for your quick actions in saving this woman.”
We wanted to make our community aware of an incident that we worked in coordination with White Settlement ISD overnight and this morning before students and faculty arrived on campus. The White Settlement Police Department worked a case in collaboration with the WSISD Police Department that involved a Brewer Middle School student. Last night, a coach notified school officials about an Instagram video posted by a juvenile that involved pointing a firearm and making references about another middle school student.
The White Settlement Police and WSISD Police Department were immediately notified, and the WSPD quickly began an investigation. WSPD identified the suspect and made contact at the adolescent’s home. WSPD confiscated an Air Soft (BB) gun, and detectives made the arrest for Terroristic Threat. The juvenile was transported to the Tarrant County Juvenile Detention Center. The other student's family has been contacted.
“Fake threats like these will warrant real regrets with arrests,” said WSPD Police Chief Christopher Cook. “We will not tolerate social media posts that threaten other students, faculty or the community and work closely with White Settlement ISD to mitigate these types of incidents.”
Chief Christopher Cook presented our 2022 Annual Police Report to City Council this evening. Here's a video recap of the presentation which also contains some of the highlights. To read the full 96-page report, please go to https://www.wstx.us/1508/Annual-Reports to review the catalog of events and highlights that your public safety team accomplished in 2022. "We are excited to present this comprehensive report to our City Council and community," said Chief Cook. "We put a lot of organizational energy into cataloging the storyboard and statistics to better educate our citizens on the challenges and opportunities that we face. I am incredibly proud of the hard work completed by our Professional Staff Team Members, Dispatchers, Police Officers, Detectives, and Supervisors."
Our team has had a lot of recent community engagement with kiddos… First, Corporal Armstrong played some table soccer with a kid and then Lt. Yount and Officer Valladares celebrated a special birthday with Trinity who has future aspirations of being a police officer! Thanks for the community invite!
WSPD’s Finest wanted to give a Sunday morning shout out to Brewer High School White Settlement ISD Boys Soccer Team for their resounding 4-1 victory over Aledo to claim the 5-5A District Championship! This is one for the history books as it was the first time for the school to claim this title! Congratulations! We are proud of you!
Meet Officer Haley Buck. “I grew up in the DFW area. I was previously a flight attendant for Spirit Airlines but have always wanted to be a police officer. I will be the first female police officer in my family. In my free time, I enjoy trying new things, cooking, and spending time with the people I love. Above all else, I show up everyday dedicated to setting a good example for my daughter, so she knows anything is possible with hard work. I’m passionate about serving and protecting others with integrity. I look forward to establishing a relationship with the community of White Settlement, and I hope to be a role model to all the children and young adults that I have the privilege to serve.”
We are super excited to welcome Officer Buck to our department and community. She was one of three recent graduates of the police academy. Please join us in providing a warm welcome to Haley!
Turned out to be a great weather day! We wanted to give a shout out to our peers at the White Settlement Fire Department who protect our city, save lives, and work alongside our blue team. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Happy Friday!
We definitely experienced some high winds. Officers and firefighters began driving the neighborhoods to record any storm damage. Most of the damages consisted of fences down, a few trees uprooted, and some roof damage to commercial businesses along S. Cherry Lane. Most of the power has been restored along Dale Lane. If you need anything, let us know. Glad everyone stayed safe.
Thank you to Brewer High School for providing a great pancake lunch for our public safety teams. The food was great, but the positive interactions were even better!
Hey White Settlement! The rain didn’t stop us from celebrating the ribbon cutting of the new fitness court. We hosted the “Siren Showdown” 🚔🚒🚨which was a competition between police and fire during the unveiling of the community’s new Fitness Court at Veterans Park. Police Detective G. Martinez took full honors on completing the siren showdown consisting of 7 athletic stations and coming in first place. Firefighter N. Raney represented the White Settlement Fire Department during the competition. Please join us in giving Detective Martinez bragging rights for the next year! Thank you Mayor Pro Tem, City Council, Parks and Recreation Board, City Manager’s Office and our wonderful Parks and Rec employees who worked hard to get this into our town!
Here’s the news release that was disseminated earlier the explains how community members can use this new facility for free.
The City of White Settlement, in coordination with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and National Fitness Campaign (NFC), announced today a partnership to bring an outdoor Fitness Court to the city. The Fitness Court, located at Veterans Park, 8901 Clifford Street, will open Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.This Fitness Court was developed by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, White Settlement and NFC to expand free access to high quality workouts and create equitable access to exercise for communities around the state. The Fitness Court is the world’s best outdoor gym that lets people use their own body weight to get a complete workout using seven exercise stations.
The concept was created for people age 14 and over, including anyone with any ability or skill set. The workouts are adaptable for all fitness levels, allowing participants to move at their own pace. Users also may download the free Fitness Court App, which acts as a coach-in-your-pocket and enhances the outdoor gym into a digitally supported wellness experience.
“On average, one in two adults don’t have enough aerobic physical activity in their day-to-day lives, which can lead to chronic, yet preventable, conditions,” said Sheena Payne, Director of Community Affairs at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas. “Helping fund these Fitness Courts is just one more way we can work toward all Texans having access to optimal health outcomes right in their own community.”
"The city is really excited to see the completion of the NFC Fitness Court at Veterans Park. The Fitness Court will be a great asset to our park system for the community to use and enjoy,” said Rich Tharp, Community Services Director.
“National Fitness Campaign is proud to welcome White Settlement to the campaign as a leader in health and wellness for Texas and across America,” said Mitch Menaged, founder of National Fitness Campaign.
“This is another huge win for our community,” said White Settlement City Manager Jeffrey James. “We look forward to welcoming residents at the new Fitness Court as people commit to healthy lifestyles.”
Residents are invited to attend the launch event on Wednesday, March 1st at 10:00 am to try out the Fitness Court. For more information, visit wstx.us, or contact The White Settlement Recreation Center at 817-246-5012.

Cook graduating recently.
“Since taking the helm at WSPD, we have really re-focused our training efforts to ensure our supervisors have access to the best training in the world,” said Chief of Police Christopher Cook. “ILEA sets the bar high with their rigorous selection of expert instructors and training topics. We have our other sergeants and lieutenants scheduled to complete this training curriculum.”
Special thanks to the ILEA Administration and core group of instructors for their commitment to making our profession better and communities stronger.
Great work by our day shift team for responding to a license plate alert indicating a stolen car entered our city. Officers found the vehicle in a parking lot at an extended stay motel along the I.H. 30 service road and Cherry Lane area. Two arrests were made by the team for Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle, Possession of Controlled Substance (illicit drugs), and a warrant out of Tarrant County. Great job by Sgt. Blaustein, Officer Russell, Officer Wyly, Officer Ramirez, and Dispatcher Brown for their detailed investigation to find the suspect who had left the vehicle and return the car to the lawful owner.
Our team participated in honoring Tarrant County Jail Corporal Aron Iseman who was involved in a fatality crash this morning. Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office and family and friends of the Corporal Iseman family.
Happy Friday morning! Hope everyone has a great day!
WSPD is hosting a media relations and communications school for North Texas this week. The class was packed with law enforcement agencies and fire departments from across North Texas. There are eight police chiefs, one city manager, and dozens of public information officers, supervisors and commanders in attendance. We are grateful for the strong attendance. Members will compete the class on Friday.
Glad we could assist! Very proud of the efforts today!
One of our officers who was off duty and at home snapped this photo of the Waxing Crescent moon 🌙 in the evening sky with Jupiter trailing close to the moon. Go outside and check this alignment out this evening. Venus is also a little lower on the horizon.

The FBI Dallas Division's Child Exploitation Task Force and the North Texas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force announce the conclusion of Operation Janus, a month-long operation aimed at the rescue of children across North Texas who are the victims of online sexual exploitation.
The White Settlement Police Department arrested Craig Schamberger on January 25, 2023 at 10:24 a.m. in the 400 block of Ralph Street at an apartment complex for Online Solicitation of a Minor, in support of an arrest warrant prepared by Fort Worth Police in conjunction with this operation. This arrest operation was carried out Sgt. Blaustein’s shift without incident.
Beginning January 16, 2023, and continuing through last Friday, February 10, 2023, law enforcement agencies across North Texas brought together highly skilled computer crimes investigators to focus resources on the identification and rescue of children in our communities who fall prey to the darkness of online predators. These investigators partnered together to dedicate their days and nights to seeking out child victims and apprehending abusers who were trafficking illegal images and videos of children forced into sexual acts.
Operation Janus culminated in the rescue of 28 children from online sexual abuse and over 80 criminal charges were filed against 59 offenders that were apprehended during this enforcement action. In addition to these arrests, investigators seized terabytes of data and electronic devices that were utilized during the commission of these crimes. They are being examined forensically and may lead to the investigation of other offenders.
"The FBI is committed to doing everything in our power to protect the most innocent amongst us, our children. We're able to achieve this through our law enforcement partnerships at the federal, state, and local level. We work together every day to identify and apprehend online predators targeting children.
Operation Janus allowed us to collectively support each other by sharing resources and intelligence to catch predators in the act. It also allowed us to recover children and protect them from further harm," said FBI Dallas Acting Special Agent in Charge James J. Dwyer.
The innocence of children must be protected at all costs. I am proud of the work we do to collectively bring to justice those who seek to harm our children through online means and for the rescue of these children from future abuse as we work to bring safety, healing, and justice to these victims and their families," said Ed Drain, Chief of the Plano Police Department.
Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia said, "The people charged as a result of this operation preyed upon some of our most vulnerable, our children. I applaud the dedication of these task force groups, including members of the Dallas Police Department, to bring these suspects to justice. We will never stop working to identify, locate and apprehend these predators to make our community safer for our children."
Operation Janus is an excellent example of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies working together to bring to justice those predators who seek to harm our children using online sources. As a result of these efforts, our communities are a safer place today.
The participating agencies would like to also thank the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and their dedicated team of Analysts for their assistance in working tirelessly to help stop the exploitation of children online.

White Settlement and West Fort Worth - We need your help getting this bad guy identified! He stole a trailer and power washer from the new McDonalds valued at $20,000. He is also driving a stolen car and stolen pickup. Investigators believe he has ties to the Parker County area also and may be responsible for dozens of offenses in western Tarrant County and Parker County. We have excellent video surveillance and tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward by calling 817-469-TIPS. You can also contact WSPD at 817-246-7070 or email [email protected] with tips. We know our community will recognize this guy and give him up! #WSPDTV
One of our police officer’s buddies sent us this incredible video of the Northern Lights while they were on a camping trip in Tok, Alaska. Beautiful Timelapse footage to get your Saturday afternoon started!
#WSPDTV In the second serious incident that was unfolding this morning, officers responded to a suspect who was burglarizing the Subway restaurant on S. Cherry Lane. He tried to flee the scene, but his getaway costume wearing an all red jumpsuit clearly gave him away. He still had the cash and stolen change in his pockets. We were also contacted by the Fort Worth Police Department who said he committed multiple burglaries along Calmont Street just a few hours before ours. FWPD also said he hit Uncle Julios restaurant, an animal clinic, and multiple areas in neighboring apartment complexes. The suspect, 40-year old Bill "Maham", was arrested and charged with felony burglary of a building in White Settlement. FWPD plans to interview him tomorrow and link additional charges on him. He also had felony warrants for Aggravated Robbery, Burglary of a Building, Felon in Possession of Firearm, and Evading Arrest. GREAT JOB BY OUR DAYSHIFT TEAM who were working an escape across town and also this burglary call!!!! "This was incredible phenomenal police work and linking all the pieces together from Fort Worth to our city," said Chief Cook. "We are starting to send the message that crime does not pay in our hometown and you will be held accountable!"
Happy Sunday! As a reminder, we expect to see EVERYONE at National Night Out on Tuesday, October 4, 2022 at Veterans Park. The fun and action start at 6 p.m. "We are really doing a huge event so we need as many people as possible to show up," said Chief Cook. "Let's show North Texas that we know how to throw the biggest party of the year on a night where neighbors take a stand against crime!" We have lots of activities, food, kids fun, and equipment to showcase to the community. If you arrive before 6 p.m., you will get to see the CareFlight helicopter come in for a close landing in the softball field. Please share with your friends and even if you live outside of White Settlement, you are still welcome to come meet our public safety team and outside agencies that will be on hand! #NNO2022
#WSPDRidealong We responded to a disturbance at the ABODE in 700 block of S. Cherry Lane in reference to an intoxicated resident trying to break the entry glass. As officers arrived, the man fled across the street and ran behind a business. Officers converged and were able to take the intoxicated man into custody without incident.
Good Monday morning! Here's something special to get your week started... On Saturday night, we gave Brandon Todd Fox 4 a special painting that was a fire truck with a Christmas tree on top. Brandon explains on television this morning why this was so special and meant so much to his family. Check out the news clip to see why..... #WhiteSettlementTX
KDFW Fox 4 provides an update on the tragic house fire yesterday that claimed two pets. Despite our brave team attempting life saving efforts on the pets, unfortunately we were not able to save them. The preliminary information is that an electric grill in the backyard is where the origin of the fire started. It remains under investigation. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.
Your police department responded to reports of an explosion in the 200 block of Saddle Road around 2:43 p.m. on Tuesday. When officers and firefighters arrived, they found a house engulfed in flames near the back of the residence. Officers quickly evacuated the occupant and nearby residents. Some of the explosion sounds may have been glass panels shattering that made large booms during the fire. Luckily no one was injured. This video includes survey of the damages. We want to thank Lockheed Martin Fire Department, Benbrook Fire Department, U.S. Navy Fire Department, Lake Worth Fire Department and the Tarrant County Fire Marshal's Office for responding to assist. While the origin of the fire remains under investigation, investigators preliminarily believe an outdoor grill in the backyard may be what caused the extensive fire. Please pray for this family who lost everything today. We know that this will be a huge loss for them and the community and our hearts are heavy as First Responders when we have to respond to incidents like this.
ICYMI KDFW Fox 4 highlights our continued enforcement efforts on reckless driving and speeding across our city.
Here's another edition of #WSPDTV featuring the suspect who fled from Sgt. Blaustein yesterday on a motorcycle. One of the reasons Chief Cook and his command staff wear their uniforms is to get out onto the streets with their team. They did just that and assisted in the apprehension of the suspect. We will NOT allow reckless drivers have full reign to do whatever they want in our city. Over the past couple of months, we have drawn a line in the sand and will continue ratcheting up enforcement efforts to deter this type of criminal activity. Great job by our team! 19-year old Jace Rogers taken into custody and charged with felony evading arrest. He was operating a motorcycle with no license plates and passing school buses during the afternoon pick-up time. It's a common tactic for operators to remove plates when bikes are stolen. In this case, the bike was not stolen. In an interesting development, we noticed that Jace was running a GoPro helmet cam during the pursuit, likely to upload to social media. Unfortunately, we now have the camera and will use it to further document this crime.
WSPD featured our team on NBC5 today in reference to our recent arrest of a catalytic converter suspect, but we are still seeing thefts across our city. As a reminder, please call us if you see suspicious people walking around at night with tools or carrying auto parts. By parking in a garage or driveway that has a motion light and/or camera system, that may be an additional deterrent. We will continue to patrol our neighborhoods and arrest suspects who victimize our hometown. We appreciate everyone assisting us by being our extra eyes and ears!
***Please Share*** #WSPDTV turns to KDFW Fox 4 Reporter Shaun Rabb as he hosts “Track Down” to help us catch a serial burglar in North Texas who has hit commercial businesses a few times since March. Three offenses occurred in White Settlement and others that are similar in nature have occurred in neighboring cities. Check out the video of this brazen burglar who low crawled in the Family Dollar to evade alarm detection and then cut into the safe and tobacco cabinet. This bald white man with a heavy build needs to be caught! 817-469-TIPS
A special thanks to KDFW Fox 4 Reporter Dionne Anglin who devoted 3 minutes to a positive story tonight about White Settlement's successes with our Flock Safety Camera system. We continue to see huge successes as it relates to the recovery of stolen cars, apprehension of violent felons and other serious criminals who come into our city. As a reminder, our camera systems only record license plates and the data is purged every 30 days. This technology is a force multiplier for our community.
Good Monday morning! ICYMI - KXAS NBC 5 covered the First Responder Appreciation Day at the Texas Rangers game on Sunday featuring our public safety teams from City of White Settlement.
#WSPDTV Machete-Wielding Man Taken into Custody During Crisis Intervention Incident - “I am extremely proud of our team who put together a robust plan and slowed things down to properly assess this incident,” said Chief of Police Christopher Cook. “There are many challenges that our law enforcement profession faces and this is a great example of those types of challenges that require quick action and good decisions made in the field.” On Friday, August 12, 2022 at approximately 6:00 a.m., officers responded to 9-1-1 calls reporting a man walking down the middle of a four-lane roadway in the 8400 block of White Settlement Road, while holding a machete and waving it. As officers arrived on scene, they located an agitated man holding a machete-style edged object in the middle of the roadway. Officers heard the man yelling at them to shoot and kill him. There was vehicular traffic on the roadway during this incident. Officers quickly closed the roadway at S. Las Vegas Trail in an attempt to protect innocent motorists. Officers also attempted verbal communications through their public address system in an attempt to take the man into custody and have him drop the weapon. The man was non-compliant and continued walking to the 8800 block of White Settlement Road and entered the parking lot of West Elementary. Officers are trained in crisis intervention techniques and utilized their experience and training to deescalate this situation. Officers deployed less-lethal weapon options, consisting of Axon tasers and shotguns specially-designed to accommodate beanbag rounds, while also maintaining lethal cover. The man dropped the machete prior to the utilization of less-lethal options and was taken into custody without incident. The identity of the man will not be released due to crisis intervention best practices and legal statutes. The department is releasing relevant portions of digital media evidence consisting of dash-camera footage to highlight the challenges an
On Thursday, August 4, 2022, Officers received a Flock Safety Alert that indicated a suspect wanted on a felony warrant out of the Fort Worth Police Department for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon (handgun). Officers quickly located the suspect parked at a local convenience store in the 2000 block of S. Las Vegas Trail. Officers arrested the suspect who was the target of the felony warrant and recovered the handgun underneath the driver's seat. Great job by Officers Valladares, Benningfield, and Brown for their continued efforts to keep White Settlement safe! "Our Flock Safety Cameras continue to be a force multiplier for our community," said Chief Cook. "We plan to expand our coverage in the coming months to add additional locations to deter criminal activity and felony suspects from operating in our hometown."
#WSPDTV Motorcycle Pursuit ***PLEASE SHARE*** Okay White Settlement… we need your help in identifying this suspect who ran from officers yesterday (Sunday afternoon). He has a very unique backpack as you can see in the video. Evading arrest on a motorcycle is a felony offense. You can call us at 817-246-7070 or email Sgt. LeNoir at [email protected] or tipsters can call 817-469-TIPS. You may be eligible for a cash reward! Help us identify this guy so he can be held accountable. We called off the pursuit out of an abundance of caution for the motoring public due to the excessive speeds once he entered the highway.
#WSPDTV Today’s edition of WSPDTV features a recent vehicle pursuit and arrest of a suspect who was engaging in erratic driving behavior in our city. He was also involved in an earlier disturbance in a neighborhood. There were no injuries to the suspect, officers or motoring public. There was also no property damage to anyone’s vehicle. Great job Sgt. Blaustein, Corporal Poarch, and Officer Brown!
Change starts with you! We are hosting our next testing date on Thursday, August 11, 2022 at 6 p.m. at the Pecan Grove Convention Center in White Settlement. WSPD is a premier agency and we need outstanding individuals to serve our community! Email Lt. Callahan [email protected] or Chief Cook [email protected] to sign up.
We hope everyone has had a great weekend! Our team was busy again this week... We took a few vehicle burglary reports on Tumbleweed Trail earlier this week. On Tuesday, neighbors called in a suspicious person "looking" into cars on Tumbleweed. As officers arrived to check on the person, they determined he had two felony warrants out of Fort Worth. Once they informed the man he was under arrest, he decided to make a run for it. It didn't take long to locate him and transport the suspect to the Tarrant County Jail. While he was not charged for any vehicle burglaries, Joshua Dunmoodie was arraigned on his felony assault charges. The Evading Arrest on foot will be added soon. Great job by Corporal Armstrong, Officer Russell, Sgt. Blaustein, Marshal Rogers, and Lt. Yount! Also, a shoutout to Fort Worth Police for assisting!
