The Fort Wayne Police Department continues to build on our community-oriented policing effort by establishing programs to engage our community and find potential qualified candidates. In doing so the FWPD has founded the below programs:

The ‘My City. My Department. My Campaign.’ Program

This program, built on the relationships already established with citizens, organizations, and businesses in Fort Wayne through our community-oriented policing practices, is an attempt to ensure the department continues to be a reflection of the community it serves.

The Future Officer Readiness Training (FORT) Program

The FORT Program is designed and dedicated to improving, enhancing, and maintaining the physical fitness level of potential future City of Fort Wayne Police Officers. The general goal of the program is to provide candidates with the skills and resources to successfully pass the Fort Wayne Police Department physical fitness test and prepare for the rigorous Fort Wayne Police Academy fitness standards.

Job Shadow/Internship Program

The FWPD Job Shadow/Internship Program is an opportunity for college students who have an interest in Law Enforcement to learn more about the Law Enforcement profession. Selected candidates will have an opportunity to experience varying roles that exist within Law Enforcement and the FWPD in our pursuit to provide professional service to the community that we serve.

The Fort Wayne Police Department is a full-service, highly sophisticated professional agency. Through innovate leadership and dedication to providing quality services, our Department maximizes its resources to provide a high-quality work environment. We give our officers the same respect and concern that we expect them to show all citizens with whom they come into contact in the line of duty.
