Police And Clergy Together (P.A.C.T)

The FCSO Police And Clergy Together (or P.A.C.T.) Program trains local clergy from within FCSO's jurisdiction (Zones 1-4) how to assist law enforcement with crowd management and victim assistance, in the event of a sudden act of violence or tragedy (e.g. school shooting, officer-involved shooting, homicide, suicide, etc.). 

Clergy from around Franklin County are provided six (6) months of training on the following: 

  • Scene Dispatch
  • On-Scene Conduct
  • On-Scene Victim Support
  • Crowd Management

Clergy participants are also given the opportunity to take a ride-a-long with a deputy in the FCSO Patrol Bureau, that is assigned to their zone. This allows P.A.C.T. members to have a "cruiser-side view" of their community, to ensure that that they are able to under stand some of the community dynamics that law enforcement typically encounters.
