Growing and thriving cities must be safe for residents, neighborhoods, businesses, and visitors. In Fort Wayne, we are a safe city, and our public safety divisions continue to perform at a high level.

The work being done by the women and men of the Fort Wayne Police and Fort Wayne Fire departments is to be commended. Their collective commitment and dedication to protecting the public is evident each day.

Providing critical services to the public is a top priority of local government, and there’s a unique initiative underway this year to make a lasting and meaningful difference.

The City of Fort Wayne has embarked on a project to relocate a number of functions to maximize resources and efficiencies for the public works and public safety divisions. To do this, we’ve purchased three buildings at the Avenue of Autos on Illinois Road to provide more modern offerings for services such as fleet, traffic operations, and our radio shop.


2022 was another landmark year in Fort Wayne.

As this year ends, we wanted to take a moment to showcase some of the impactful projects, programs and initiatives that helped move Fort Wayne forward. These projects could not have happened without the commitment and collaboration between the City Fort Wayne, residents, neighborhood leaders, non-profits, businesses, and community organizations.


According to data from the CDC, homicide is the leading cause of death among African-American males ages 10-24, nationwide. This means that local communities are faced with the heavy burden of how to prevent violence while struggling to understand why it continues to plague the families that become fractured because of the tragic loss of a loved one. Consequently, everyone in the victim's household is negatively impacted emotionally, socially, and even economically in a never-ending domino effect. There seems to be no simple solution to this crisis, but since its launch in 2016, Mayor Tom Henry’s Fort Wayne UNITED initiative has made headway by convening experts and system leaders of the community in health, education, employment, family, faith and law enforcement.
