Police & Clergy Together

The Police and Clergy Together (PACT) initiative partners Dayton's faith-based community with our Dayton Police Officers. After graduation from the Academy, PACT members focus on three things:
  • Praying for our Dayton Police Officers along with our community
  • Building and improving relationships with our Dayton Police Officers
  • Serving citizens and officers in need through pastoral call-outs
The Dayton Police Department trains future members through the PACT Academy. The Police Department is currently not accepting applications to PACT. Keep checking back for when we open a new class.


PACT members are trained by Dayton Police in the following areas:
  • Children’s Services
  • Cold Cases
  • Dispatch Process
  • Firearms
  • Gang Intelligence
  • Homicide
  • Law of Arrest
  • Peer Support
  • Policies/Procedures
  • Property Crimes
  • Robbery
  • Role of PACT Rider
  • Role of a Peace Officer
  • Special Victims Unit
  • Vice - Prostitution/Narcotics
  • Victim Assistance
