The Fort Worth Police Department has increased their budget and will be reissuing a bid proposal to replace their aging JetRanger. The helicopter is 22-years old, with 23,000 flight hours under it’s belt. The helicopter is costing the department a lot in maintenance. They applied for the proposal for a new helicopter in 2017 but were denied. They have now received more funds this year; $1.1 million from a general capital projects fund and $3.6 million from the CCPD, reports STAR Telegram.
