DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott is partnering with Lexipol through his Faith Fight Finish Foundation to bring community and youth engagement training to law enforcement agencies across the U.S.
According to a press release, the Faith Fight Finish Foundation’s mission involves bridging a gap between community youths and law enforcement. Through this new partnership, the foundation’s Connecting Youth and Communities with Law Enforcement (CYCLE) program will bring training to agencies and communities at no cost.
The program will be offered online through several hours of built-in training that includes a section for community resources.
“Faith Fight Finish is a foundation that’s close to home in both geography and mission with one of its core purposes aligning with Lexipol’s goal in supporting law enforcement operations and community engagement,” Lexipol CEO Chuck Corbin said. “Improving police-community relations starts with education, so we are excited to have the opportunity to work with Faith Fight Finish to develop and distribute this important training.”
The new partnership includes the infrastructure of Lexipol’s learning management system to deliver training that supports the shared mission of Lexipol and the Faith Fight Finish foundation.
“We believe the more law enforcement professionals and community members have conversations, the better and safer police interactions will be for young people,” Dak Prescott said. “We know we can bridge the gap between law enforcement and the communities they serve with Lexipol. Lexipol will allow us to reach law enforcement agencies across the country to implement the CYCLE training in as many communities as possible!”
