'Worship Watch' partners Memphis police with churches
I went to church for this story.. Literally. The Memphis Police Department is partnering with churches to build communication. MPD officials believe clergy and congregations have a direct connection with communities and can be a tool to fight crime. Many churches also welcome stronger relationships with officers. The idea started in the Frayser area at the Old Allen Station police precinct. Precincts around the city are now reaching out to other churches. It's nice doing a story about possible crime solutions rather than just random crime that we cover so often.
