about us

+Vision
We Save Lives! That has been our motto and goal since the begining. All of our efforts are to make our communities safer and to enrich the lives of families.
+Our Mission
To break down barriers between people and organizations that prevent living in a peaceful and cooperative community.
+Our Purpose
Bringing together spiritual and Civil Authorities for the common good and safety of our children, congregations and communities.
+Meeting A Need
The Cops & Clergy Network is meeting a widely felt need as is evidenced by the founding of multiple chapters throughout the Inland Empire, with new chapters being organized on a regular basis. This partnership provides greater opportunities to reach out to residents of the communities to improve the quality of life in our city.

The Cops & Clergy Network provides the following services:

  • Chapter development services
  • Community liaison and relationship consulting services
  • Coordination services for Faith based and civic partnerships development
  • Relationship and sensitivity training for faith communities and government entities
  • Need assessment services

.

+Areas Of Focus
The Service Area: CCN will assist and service any community nation-wide that has an interest in establishing a Chapter of the Cops and Clergy Network.

The Target Area: CCN employs strategies that works with faith based groups, community based groups, police departments, local government, county government and other government groups and departments. Either of these groups can be an initiator group.

.

+Tutoring and Mentoring
We are developing tutorial programs that allows students to visit neighborhood churches after school to receive help with their homework. This plays a huge part in preparing our children for the future and to keep their minds focused on the positive side of education.

Through the help of family and neighborhood organizations we are able to obtain tutors and mentors that help guide the children through everyday life. We have programs that include day trips to the community center where the children can swim, play basketball and participate in other activities.

All of the programs help to keep our children in a positive atmosphere and helps them understand important values that are needed to lead successful lives.
