Why we do what we do.

Serve & Connect was founded in honor of Forest Acres Police Department Officer Gregory Alia, who was killed in the line of duty on September 30, 2015. Remembered as an officer who served his community with compassion and respect, our organization is committed to those ideals, supporting the work of law enforcement officers who—in addition to their police responsibilities—identify need and seek to address it. It is our shared belief that in partnership with the neighborhoods they serve, law enforcement officers can help address the immediate conditions that give rise to issues of community safety.
