New Class Coming in 2015

2014 fwfd class 1

The 60th basic recruit class of the Fort Wayne Police Department began on February 10, 2014. In June 2013, Mayor Tom Henry and the Fort Wayne City Council approved a local option income tax to provide funding for the Fort Wayne Police Department to have an academy class to add more officers to serve and protect residents and businesses. This year's recruit class is made up of men and women between the ages of 22 and 35. They will graduate on June 27, 2014.

The Local Option Income Tax (LOIT) is dedicated to public safety and is expected to generate $4.7 million for our Police and Fire Departments in 2014.

The LOIT funding will aid the Police Department with next year's recruiting too. More than700 applications were submitted for the 2015 recruit class. The group will be narrowed down later this year following agility and written testing as well as an interview and background check. The 2015 class is scheduled to begin in January.

The City of Fort Wayne has implemented a Blue Star Banner Program to honor and recognize City of Fort Wayne residents and City of Fort Wayne government employees who are actively deployed.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for us to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our service members. The men and women on active deployment sacrifice so much for our freedom that a program such as the Blue Star Banner is a great way to highlight the efforts of the real heroes in our City." – Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry

If you wish to recommend the name of an actively deployed service member for the Blue Star Banner Program, please use the link provided for the Participation Application Form.
