Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?”
SLCPD’s Cops Serving in the Community is a group of members of the Salt Lake City Police Department who are committed to helping the sick and disabled members of our community. Our goal is to provide service and assistance to those who have to spend time in hospitals and other care facilities. The members are involved in the project because they care about those in unfortunate circumstances and they give their own time on a volunteer basis to participate.
Serving in our community is something that many of us don’t think about, or don’t believe we have time for. However, all that is needed to make our community better is for each of us to give of ourselves in some small way. Through our dedicated efforts to engage ourselves in sustained, meaningful community service, we can give support to some of our most vulnerable citizens to enhance their quality of life, reduce social isolation and possibly transform lives.
Our hope is that we can inspire other police agencies and community organizations to seek out hospitals and care centers in their community in need of volunteers and join us in this project. We invite any groups interested in getting involved in the program to use the contact form below or contact Cary Wichmann at email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: (801) 680-8536.
