FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Police departments are struggling to find recruits. Market conditions, public perception, and other factors contribute to challenging hiring conditions.

Fort Wayne police recruiters are changing their tactics in response. Instead of hunting for criminal justice students in the traditional recruiting path, officers are casting wider nets in non-traditional areas.

Fort Wayne police recruiters are struggling just like their counterparts across the country. They can't find enough recruits to fill their ranks.
