FAQs for Adopt A Cop
How does the system work?
It is all voluntary. A concerned citizen volunteers to adopt a law enforcement officer, and law enforcement officers sign up of their own accord to be prayed for.
What is the procedure for contacting the law enforcement agency in my locality?
Adopt A Cop is built around relationships - about you having the desire to build and strengthen the relationship with the law enforcement agency and her officers. Approach your law enforcement chief officer through proper channels to present the resource of prayer as a benefit to the agency. Respect protocol. Go with a proper and credible backing (eg., the support of your pastor or pastors alliance). Use the brochures and tools that are provided in the side bar. For more insights and instructions, download the Suggestions for Offering Adopt A Cop to your local Law Enforcement Agency.
How can I get the name of a law enforcement official to pray for if I don’t have one to pray for?
When you fill in the name of your city, if there is a law enforcement official who has signed up to be adopted, his/her initials will appear in a drop-down menu. Select one to pray for. If no name appears there, it means that most likely no one has approached the law enforcement agencies of your locality. Consider doing so yourself, using the brochures and tools that are provided. See the FAQ titled What is the procedure for contacting the law enforcement agency in my locality?
Why do only the initials, agency and locality of the law enforcement official appear, and not the full name?
No additional information is made public on this site for security reasons.
How can I make personal contact with the officer that I am praying for?
It is for security reasons that we do not allow our website to generate any communication between the law enforcement officer and the general public, including adopters. However, because Adopt A Cop is built on relationship and trust, we encourage your congregation or ministry to invite your local law enforcement officials, beat officers, etc. to a service or appreciation event. That setting and relationship opens the door for a more personal contact.
