About Community & Police Working Group Grants

The Community & Police Working Group is made up of representatives from the City of Lancaster government, the Lancaster City Bureau of Police, the Lancaster branch of the NAACP, representatives from community benefit organizations, clergy, and city residents. Since its formation in the summer of 2018, the group has made strides towards improving trust and cooperation between the Lancaster City Bureau of Police and the public it serves by addressing issues such as recruitment and hiring, use of force, the civilian complaint form and a body camera policy.


Now we want to hear from YOU and support your efforts to improve or strengthen the relationship between the Lancaster City Bureau of Police and city residents through projects that provide opportunities for education, awareness, or building community. We will be providing $500 mini grants that will support your idea. So fill out this application to show us how you could use some funds to build community between the Lancaster City Bureau of Police and city residents!
