The National Faith and Blue weekend is a powerful initiative that builds bridges to more engaged communities.
At the heart of this initiative is the reinforcement of connections between law enforcement professionals and the communities they serve through the reach of houses of worship. There is no resources that can match the depth of the faith community in facilitating productive engagement with law enforcement, which is needed now more than ever.
