James City County Police Department, in conjunction with the Virginia Fusion Center, is providing Safety for Faith-Based Organizations on March 5, 8 a.m.-noon (with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m.). This presentation will provide information as to how religious organizations can be welcoming and safe at the same time.
