Cleveland Police Hosts Breakfast To Kick Off National Faith and Blue Weekend
The Chaplain Corps of the Cleveland Police Department held a free breakfast at a local Chick-Fil-A this morning as part of the National Faith and Blue Weekend kicking off.
Cleveland Police officers and members of their chaplain corps met this morning to pray with the public and to build connections with community. It is part of a national weekend event to enhance justice and reconciliation between law enforcement and the community.
The police chaplain corps plays a vital role in bringing comfort to both the public and officers following a tragic event.
Lawrence Cotton, Cleveland Police Department Chaplain, said, “When people are hurting, they need someone to come along and give the hope. And just love on them during that time. It’s very important to do that. I know if I was going through a hard time, I would need someone to come and speak into my life and give me hope and just be with me during that time.”
