Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry’s Public Safety Roundtable members today participated in interactive scenarios at the Public Safety Academy: Ivy Tech South Campus to gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by law enforcement. Participants also learned about the importance of how Fort Wayne Police Department officers are trained.
Today’s roundtable was the third in a series of public safety discussions that will occur over the next several months. The roundtable format started in 2014 and is designed to explore how Fort Wayne’s diverse community can come together to ensure the overall safety of all residents.
The Mayor’s Roundtable on Public Safety provides an opportunity for an open dialogue about local law enforcement agencies’ proactive public safety efforts. The sessions also focus on how the community can collaborate and communicate with police officers to enhance public safety services provided moving forward.
The Fort Wayne Police Department works collaboratively with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Indiana State Police, the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, and the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office to reduce violence and solve crimes.
