KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City faith leaders are partnering with Kansas City Police in hopes of building relationships with people in the community.

It’s called Faith & Blue. The idea is to allow the faith community to help facilitate interactions and discussions with police officers, departments and the communities they serve.

The organization says that both law enforcement and faith are key pillars in every community. The group says it’s time that the two start working together even more to build safe and productive communities where everyone can succeed.
