You can find the association carrying out its mission by volunteering to feed the homeless, providing thousands of dollars in scholarships to deserving students, hosting holiday toy giveaways, feeding needy families during holidays, mentoring children and young adults, hosting community events and being both advocates and activist for social and economic justice. The Black Police Association of Greater Dallas hopes to continue to bridge any gaps that remain between the police and the community striving forward for the next 40 years.
