Rebuilding the Clergy Response Team

Posted: April 18, 2012 by ERCPCP Blogger in Uncategorized

The East of the River Clergy Police Community Partnership (ERCPCP) is in the process of rebuilding and rejuvenating its Clergy Response Team (CRT).  This team consists of members of community organizations and clergy and members from area churches and faith-based organizations.  Its original mission was to assist those that have been affected by crime by responding to scenes of serious traumatic incidents including shootings.  The mission also includes providing referral service to victims’ family members for critical crisis intervention and counseling.

During the most recent past years, in the spirit of cooperation, CRT began working with another group and adjusted its mission. This change, however, resulted in a reduction in the number of CRT volunteers.  Well, God has now directed the CRT back to its original mission and vision, thus resulting in its rebuilding.  The rebuilding team meets every 3rd Saturday of the month.  The next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 10:00 AM at ERCPCP’s main office.  We have also planned an official kick-off for the newly rebuilt team which is scheduled for Saturday, May 26th.   If you want to join this team and help rebuild this critical community initiative, please call 202-373-5767.

We welcome you to join us!
