MEDIA, PA — Members of law enforcement and leaders of faith-based organizations across the county joined the community in a Peace, Justice, & Unity Walk on October 8.

The walk, organized by Delaware County Sheriff Jerry Sanders, Media Borough Police Department, Second Baptist Church, and the Delaware County Chaplains was an initiative to include Delaware County law enforcement, faith-based organizations, and the community in the National Faith & Blue event, which takes place October 8-11 this year.

Faith & Blue was launched 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 and community relations through activities that are organized jointly by faith-based or other community groups and law enforcement agencies.
