Blue Watch Continues to Minister
While the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the postponement of our Spring Conference, Blue Watch continues to minister to officers.
In April, after an hours-long standoff, Florence PD officers fatally shot a suspect that was involved in a shooting earlier that morning. This was the second recent officer-involved shooting for Florence officers. Blue Watch sent copies of Tim Rupp’s book “Winning A Gunfight” to Chief Ron Tyler to be given to these officers. If you were able to hear Tim speak last year when he visited Birmingham, you know how critical it is to get this into the hands of officers, particularly those involved in shootings. Please keep these officers and their families in your prayers.
Recently, Blue Watch partnered with Shades Mountain Baptist Church to host a cookout for officers at the Vestavia Hills Police Department. The cookout was to show appreciation for all they are doing for their community in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.
Blue Watch strives to provide resources that minister to the professional, emotional and spiritual well-being of officers and their families. In an effort to expand our capabilities, we have added a resources page to our website. Here you will find links to valuable information. This is a work in progress, so stay tuned as we grow these resource in the weeks ahead.
National Police Week
This week is National Police Week. Please remember in your prayers the families of those officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Spring Conference Postponed
