SAVANNAH, GA (November 19, 2018) – The Savannah Police Department will host a meeting for clergy and religious leaders with a goal of discussing ways the police department can build better relationships with the faith-based community.

Clergy members will have the opportunity to meet Director of Police Services Roy Minter, hear his vision for the police department and share ideas on how SPD and religious leaders can work together.

“At the police department, we understand that the support of the faith-based community is invaluable,” said Minter. “Combating crime, reducing the fear of crime and creating safe neighborhoods is not a job we can do alone. It takes a total communal effort to make Savannah a better place to live, work and visit. We hope this meeting will be a great step forward in that direction.”

The meeting will take place at the Savannah Civic Center on Monday, December 3 at 6 p.m. The participants will have the chance to meet with SPD command staff members and network with other leaders in the area.

“Savannah is a great city for us all to live in,” said SPD Chaplain Coordinator, Pastor Charles Roberson. “We have a great faith community and police department here. When we work together in unity, we can help create a stronger community.”
