Fort Wayne Police Officer Pay Could Start Around $70K Under Plan To Attract Recruits

FORT WAYNE, IN — A pay increase for Fort Wayne police officers could be on the way. This comes after the Fort Wayne City Council unanimously voted and approved a new contract for the department.

Why, though?

This all came about after a recommendation from the Mayor’s Commission on Police Reform and Racial Justice. The commission was started last summer and one of the reports showed that there was a suggestion for a pay increase for FWPD officers.
