As Chief of Police, I join with all members of the Fort Wayne Police Department in welcoming you to our web site. The dedicated women and men who serve as Fort Wayne Police Officers take great pride in providing you, our customers, with the highest level of police services possible.

I encourage you to take the time to browse our web site to enable you to fully appreciate the quality level of services we provide. Through the hard work of all of our officers, and the support of our City Administration, we have earned the recognition as being one of the most technologically advanced, well-equipped, and professionally trained police departments in the country. Our implementation of innovative programs such as the re-enrty court, ministerial police academies, and study circles on race for law enforcement have also gained us national recognition.

Fort Wayne is a city with a growing, diverse, and vibrant population that is well known as a great place to raise a family. We are fortunate to have an abundance of active and caring neighborhood and community leaders who have worked hard with us to develop effective partnerships. As a result, we now enjoy the lowest crime rates in the past twenty years.
