Just a quick update on the progress of our outreach to our community’s faith based organizations.
You might recall that on December 3rd we invited all of the faith based organizations in our community and those close by with members in our community to a meeting at the police station.
As we watch events in our country and around the world related to faith organizations we decided there was more we can do to help. Our main concern is that houses of worship may feel more vulnerable these days. A second goal was to build a stronger relationship with all of these organizations. We are a community policing agency and we are always working to better know who lives and works here and for them to know us. We also asked whether any would like to host us for “Coffee with a Cop.” It is a great opportunity to meet one on one.
We were pleased to have about 1/3 of the invitees join us for a one hour meeting. We look forward to a second meeting in March which has already been scheduled.
