Mesquite Police Department Announces Participation in Faith & Blue Event
The Mesquite Police Department is pleased to announce it will begin participating in the National Faith & Blue event. National Faith & Blue weekend is a nationwide collaboration between law enforcement and faith institutions to help build bridges to more engaged communities.
This Friday morning, October 8th, officers with the Mesquite Police Department will have brunch with local clergy leaders from all faiths and develop relationships of trust that will extend throughout the community. The event will be held at the Mesquite United Methodist Church with local congregation members providing the food and service.
Chief MaQuade Chesley stated “law enforcement and religious leaders are often looked to as pillars in the community. As we work together in this partnership, we will continue to help Mesquite thrive and ensure the entire city always has a helping hand available to them”.
The mission of Faith & Blue is to facilitate safer, stronger, more just and unified communities by directly enabling local partnerships among law enforcement professionals, residents, businesses and community groups through the connections of local faith-based organizations. The initiative aims to re-calibrate police-community relations through solutions-focused activities that are organized jointly by faith-based or other community groups and law enforcement agencies.
