National Faith & Blue Weekend

Event Details

Other Information

Join the Jackson Police Department October 8-11, 2021 for Faith & Blue Weekend, a powerful initiative that builds bridges to more engaged communities across the nation. This weekend is about resolution and reconciliation, a collaborative effort to build bridges and break biases.

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 resource that can match the depth of the faith community in facilitating productive engagement with law enforcement, which is needed now more than ever.
