Cops & Clergy
The Mission of the Sacramento Police Department’s Cops & Clergy program is to unite members of the faith-based community with the Sacramento Police Department to foster relationships, build community trust and reduce gang violence through outreach and intervention.
The primary goal of the Cops and Clergy Program is the development of trust between the Sacramento Police Department, the clergy and the communities they both serve. This trust is developed and nurtured through relationship building and positive actions. The third Ministers Academy was held in spring of 2016.
