The community is invited to participate in Delaware County's Peace, Justice, & Unity March on October 8, hosted by Delaware County Sheriff Jerry Sanders, Media Borough Police Department, and Second Baptist Church.
Delaware County Sheriff Jerry Sanders is spearheading an initiative to include Delaware County law enforcement, faith-based organizations, and the community in the National Faith & Blue event, which takes place Oct. 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-community relations through solutions-focused, in-person, socially distanced and/or virtual activities that are organized jointly by faith-based or other community groups and law enforcement agencies.
