GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Officers from the Greensboro Police Department will join with local members of the clergy in a Prayer Walk to reaffirm their commitment to making the city safer.

The walk is scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. It’s organized by Pastor Jonathan Lewis with Christ Wesleyan Church and includes leaders from other neighborhood faith-based organizations.

Lewis, who also volunteers as a police chaplain, says he thinks the half-mile walk from the intersection of Merritt Drive and Overland Heights to Peale Terrace will show community members that many people pray for the safety of their families.

Police Lt. Larry Thompson says the walk is an opportunity to get neighborhood residents more involved in preventing criminal activity. Thompson said the department wants residents to know police and clergy stand with them.
