The Clergy and Police Alliance program (C.A.P.A.) is a coalition of clergy from every faith and denomination who work in partnership with the Fort Worth Police Department. CAPA members and their organizations are often called upon to pray for our police department, to be intentional in the building of relationships with our police officers and other governmental officials, and to be available for crisis situations. This program is a unique ministerial opportunity.
Some of the goals of this program include: pray for our city, city leaders, police officers and special needs; assisting the police in non-traditional roles; provide calm in crisis situations to prevent an escalation to violence; assist in domestic situations where a minister is requested or needed; offer support to victims; relay factual information back to the neighborhoods using your established networks and the Code Blue Program; and emergency and disaster response training through the Citizen Emergency Response Team (CERT).
Based on CAPA's relationship with the Fort Worth Police Department the goal of CAPA is to spread the CAPA program to every church and faith-based organization in our city. Our hope is that every faith, every church, and every denomination will hear the call to connect with us in this unique opportunity.
