Faith and Police Together

26 Nov 2019

Faith and Police is a fantastic initiative aimed at addressing some of the most challenging issues within our society. It is clear that when we are dealing with some of the most difficult social problems, such as homelessness, isolation, addiction and subjects such as youth gangs and knife crime, a single organisation will not be successful. Faith and Police brings together the police service, with the faith community to galvanise people who can make a real difference in their local community.

This document provides a step by step guide to help faith communities to engage with the police and to focus their passion for helping others in such a way to support the police and to find long term solutions. It is for neighbourhood police teams who feel they are fighting these challenges alone and struggling to find solutions and for faith groups who want to help but don’t know where to start. The guide covers the role many different faith groups have played in finding the answer and gives examples and information how really simple acts of kindness can have a significant impact. I have been involved in problem solving policing for many years and I am convinced that this guide will provide a fundamental change to the way faith groups and police work together for the good of society.
