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.
