See full City of Fort Worth article here.

The Fort Worth Police Department has received numerous false claims across its social media platforms indicating Fort Worth police officers are enforcing “stay-at-home” checkpoints by pulling drivers over and asking for work documentation.

These claims are not accurate.

The FWPD is not and will not enforce these types of traffic stops. If an officer makes a traffic stop, it will be for an observed traffic violation or for investigation of another criminal offense.
