Mayor praises recruits for commitment to public service
(February 17, 2014) – Mayor Tom Henry today met with the new recruits for the Fort Wayne Police and Fire departments.
Last week, 22 recruits began the Fort Wayne Police Department’s academy class. Earlier today, 25 recruits began the Fort Wayne Fire Department’s academy class.
The academy classes are made possible by the leadership of Mayor Henry’s Administration, the Fiscal Policy Group, neighborhood and business leaders, and the members of City Council who supported and passed a financial plan that provided funding for academy classes that will result in additional police officers and firefighters to make the City as safe as possible.
“I’m encouraged by the enthusiasm and dedication displayed by our new recruits,” said Mayor Henry. “Our future police officers and firefighters are committed to public service, and they’re joining an outstanding team of professionals.”
