MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) — Memphis Police say local clergy may be a secret weapon in the fight against crime. They are the eyes and ears of their communities and help people choose right from wrong.

Thursday was graduation day for 57 faith leaders who took part in the clergy police academy.

Cops and clergy are teaming up to create partnerships between the faith-based community and law enforcement, helping clergy to become more informed about crime related issues in their communities.
