The Douglas Police Department is teaming together with law enforcement agencies, Coffee County Churches, and the Magnolia House to participate in National Faith and Blue Weekend, October 7-9, 2022.
On Friday, October 7, at 8 AM, the public is invited to come out and cheer your first responders at the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event. The "Walk a Mile In Her Shoes" event is a collaboration with law enforcement agencies and the Magnolia House to raise awareness of domestic violence against women. Officers and Pastors are invited to participate and walk in high heels beginning at Central Square Gym. No registration fee – please bring hygiene items to donate to the Magnolia House Shelter for Abused Persons.
Ending the Faith & Blue weekend on Sunday, October 9, churches in Coffee County are asked to recognize law enforcement officers and to collect donations for the Magnolia House Shelter for Abused Persons. The Police Department will coordinate with churches to pick up all donations and arrange delivery to the Magnolia House.
Faith and Blue Weekend is an initiative of MovementForward, Inc. and One Congregation One Precinct (OneCOP). The Magnolia House is a non-profit agency that provides services to victims of domestic violence who do not know where to turn, or have no place to go for assistance.
