Community Celebrates Faith & Blue Event

The LaGrange Police Department with the Troup County Sheriff’s Department and the Georgia State Patrol hosted a local Faith & Blue event Sunday, October 11th at the First Baptist Church on the Square in downtown LaGrange.

Nearly 100 people participated in the event.

The National Faith & Blue Weekend (NFBW) was October 9th-12th. The purpose of NFBW Weekend is to create safer, more inclusive communities by connecting law enforcement officers and the residents they protect and serve through houses of worship.

Local law enforcement joined other national law enforcement groups, the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and MovementForward, Inc.’s One Congregation One Precinct (OneCOP) initiative in this national event.

Hog Heaven, Chick-fil-A and Dairy Queen provided food and First Baptist Church on the Square provided the location for this free event. It was open to the public.
