Policing In the Triangle
Supporting Blue Lights College
On June 27, 2018, we are bringing together a dynamic panel of past and current Attorney Generals and Police Chiefs at the City Club of Raleigh to discuss the current problems facing our local police force and the community and what is being done to solve them. As the Triangle grows, public safety is paramount to new companies looking to establish offices in RTP and a major concern for talent moving here. As national news reports on the growing divide between the police force and the community, our leadership is working hard to bridge that gap through programs, like Apex's newly established Blue Lights College, a nonprofit dedicated to training our future police force to approach conflict with compassion.
Join us to learn how our leadership is approaching the national concern of public saftey, in our street and in our schools, and learn how you can be part of the solution.
Please contact The City Club of Raleigh for Tickets and visit bluelightscollege.org to learn more about the nonprofit we are supporting.
Blue Lights College of Apex is a full two-year police academy training the next generation of police officers to communicate compassionately, thereby equipping them to change the current policing climate in America. Students will study topics such as policing, sociology, and communication with the goal of transforming the next generation of police officers into a force prepared to deal with the modern struggle of our society: mental illness.
We would love to have this college continue to be tuition free for anyone called to be an officer and I need your help. Blue Lights College is a non-profit, so donations are tax-deductible, and every penny goes towards moving the mission forward. Blue Lights College believes anyone called to be an officer should have the opportunity to do so, regardless of economic status. To give everyone the opportunity to serve, the inaugural class of 50 students will be tuition free but we need your help to make this possible.
