FORT WORTH, Texas-

On Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2022, Fort Worth Police Department (FWPD) Officer Victor Rucker #4220 was terminated following an administrative investigation into an incident that occurred in June 2022.

On June 2, 2022, Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested Officer Rucker for a domestic violence incident that occurred while he was off-duty.

Upon learning of his arrest, the FWPD immediately began an administrative investigation. Officer Rucker was placed on restricted duty and stripped of all police powers during the course of the ongoing criminal and administrative investigations.

After a thorough review of the administrative investigation, Officer Rucker’s chain of command determined that Rucker violated multiple FWPD policies.

Chief Noakes concurred with the chain of command’s determination and terminated Officer Rucker’s employment with the department.

The FWPD will continue to hold employees accountable who do not meet the standards expected of a Fort Worth Police Officer and in doing so, will continue to be transparent and open with our community.  

Any inquiries regarding the criminal investigation should be directed to the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office.
