Members of the clergy and of faith-based and civic organizations are invited to attend the inaugural meeting of the Lake Elsinore/Wildomar Cops & Clergy Network at the local sheriff’s station.

The meeting takes place June 18 at 6 p.m. 

This Lake Elsinore/Wildomar Cops & Clergy Network is sponsored by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, Lake Elsinore Station, the Lake Elsinore Police Department and the Wildomar Police Department, according to a news release from Chaplain John Lopotosky, a retired lieutenant. 

“The purpose of the Cops & Clergy Network is to break down barriers that hinder communication between law enforcement agencies, faith based organizations, and the community at-large,” according to Lopotosky. “Cops & Clergy chapters strive to promote collaboration between these groups in solving community problems that might be unresponsive to more traditional approaches.” 

Cops & Clergy chapters are non-denominational and membership is open to all faiths, faith-based organizations, civic groups, educational systems or school districts, and county or city governmental entities, Lopotosky said. 

“Our goal will be to identify resources that may be utilized to improve the quality of life in our communities, as well as acting as a conduit for information from local law enforcement to the communities we serve,” he added.

The inaugural meeting will take place at the Lake Elsinore Police and Sheriff's Station, 333 Limited Ave., Lake Elsinore, CA 92530. Anyone interested in participating in the Cops & Clergy Network is asked to confirm their attendance or request information by leaving a message for one of the station chaplains at 951-245-3385.
