Body-Worn Camera Survey

The City of Fort Wayne Police Department (FWPD) is seeking community feedback as it begins a body-worn camera pilot project. These small cameras will be purchased during the first half of 2016 and will be worn by police officers to record video and sound during citizen interactions.
