Post Crime Reports for a Street Address? 
We're buying a home and wondered if the police crime reports for a certain address can be accessed. Seems like that would be useful information about the history of a property and might help avoid surprises down the road.

Southside,

We receive these requests often from people like you that are in the market for a new home, and we are pleased to assist you with this. The Fort Wayne Police Department has a Crime Analysis Unit that is staffed by two full-time civilian employees, and one part-time civilian employee and they can respond to your request.

If you provide an address (example: 1300 block of E. Creighton Avenue) a report can be generated listing the number of and types of calls for service that this department has responded to for that area.

You may direct that request to the Crime Analysis Unit at 260 427-2241.

Other options you may want to look into is the News Sentinel's online special, Lights & Sirens, and the website SpotCrime.

Following is the url for each:
