FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – On May 5, Fort Wayne police responded to approximately 500 calls for service.

Traffic stops, domestic disturbances, unwanted parties, fights, and hundreds of other calls make up everyday police work around the Summit City.

Officer Jason Anthony has been in law enforcement for almost 14 years, previously serving with the Allen County Sheriff’s Department before joining the Fort Wayne Police Department. Anthony has spent ten years working with the FWPD, nine years working southeast Fort Wayne, and eight years working third shift.

“Keep yourself, keep your fellow officers, keep the community safe,” Anthony said during the ride-along. “If you do that after 8 1/2 hours, you did a good job.”

NewsChannel 15 overnight reporter Rod Hissong spent part of a shift with Anthony to see exactly what police deal with on the streets.
