CAUTION Against Revenge in Saginaw, Flint

 
CAUTION Against Revenge in Saginaw,  Flint
Posted Monday, November 4th 2013 @ 7am  by The Associated Press

State police plan to team with clergy in Saginaw and Flint as part of an effort to reduce some of the negative ways people react in the wake of violent crime.
 
Published reports say  the pilot project is to begin in January and will involve a partnership between state police and clergy of all faiths in the two cities. It's called "CAUTION - Community Action Team United in Our Neighborhood.''
 
State police say the program, which seeks in part to decrease retaliation, could be expanded statewide if it's successful.
 
To start, state police are seeking clergy volunteers to help. The agency hopes to form a quick-response team of clergy members to respond to crime scenes to be a calming influence and to act as a liaison with police.
