strategize ways to end recidivism (repeat offenses) and the fundamental thing
to do that is to work together with communities, local government and places of
faith. We’re doing something different today and that’s airing an event called
Faith & Blue.
Faith & Blue Weekend is sponsored by FirstNet Built with AT&T and the
Motorola Solutions Foundation. During this weekend Law Enforcement
Officers and local residents connect through faith-based organizations. It’s
the largest annual collaborative policing initiative in the country.
Faith & Blue Weekend is an extension of the One Congregation One Precinct
initiative (OneCOP), a program of MovementForward, Inc., which is a
bridge-building, solutions-focused human and civil rights organization based in
Atlanta, Georgia. The OneCOP initiative pairs together officers at the beat or
precinct level with local faith-based organizations.
Mission – National Faith & Blue Weekend
facilitates safer and stronger communities by engaging law enforcement officers
and local residents through the connections of faith-based organizations.
