How can YOU help us bridge the gap between first responders and the communities they serve?

One CommunityUSA | Shop Talk program builds on a dynamic and successful community engagement project initiated by the Irving TX PD and formalized by One CommunityUSA. We understand the essential role in creating a sense of community and building relationships that happen in neighborhood barber shops and beauty salons, particularly in the African American community. Shop Talk establishes open lines of communication, changes attitudes and increases trust between first responders, shop owners and their customers. Impact to the community: Everyone working together towards a common goal of safer and more secure neighborhoods.

We are excited to see this program expand to Euless, Duncanville, DeSoto and Carrollton Police Departments!

“Visiting the shops creates the opportunity for shop owners and customers to interact with law enforcement thereby opening the lines of communication and trust. The time spent together is significant for both sides.” ~ Detective John Plunkett | Irving Police Dept.
