DOING WHAT THEY KNOW, BUT KNOWING THEY CAN’T DO IT ALL ON THEIR OWN. 35832 WE’VE GOT 150 GUNS OFF THE STREET BUT THERE’S STILL A RECORD NUMBER OF HOMICIDES GOING ON THIS YEAR, SO THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING MORE BESIDE POLICE GOING OUT THERE AND MAKING ARRESTS. THE DEPARTMENT IS LOOKING FOR NEW WAYS TO COMBAT THE PROBLEM. JUST RECENTLY CHIEF REED AND THE GANG UNIT MET WITH THE MINISTERIAL ALLIANCE TO TALK ABOUT WAYS THEY CAN WORK TOGETHER TO KEEP KIDS OFF THE STREETS AND OUT OF GANGS.

    FORT WAYNE HAS ALLOWED THE DRUG CARTELS TO TAKE OVER FORT WAYNE ON THE SOUTHSIDE! GET REAL, I'M ONLY SEEING BLACK GUYS, WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE RACES OF CRIMINALS OUT THERE?

  • Indy

    Well at least the murders are mostly isolated. They don’t have to go far to figure it out. Just turn the corner, More than likely they’re selling crack.

  • Hip Hip Local up-coming new artists in your city

    they need to arrest some these crooked lawyers, cops and judges in fort Wayne, half of them Klan members or coke heads.

  • Ryan Lee

    legalize weed and maybe they wont have any funding? but Indiana makes too much off the court system (notice I didnt say justice system)

  • Kimberly Mortenson

    I live on Runnion. Shoot out today between two cars while kids getting off the bus. Hispanic shooters. Hispanic shooting victim last Sunday-dead. Gangs are shooting it out, bullets are piercing our homes. Where is the increased police presence?
