CHEYENNE,Wyo.— Calling all Cheyenne High School Juniors and Seniors!!!!! Have you
ever thought about becoming the Police Chief for a day or what changes you would make in our
community of you were the Chief? Now is your chance to make a difference.
The Faith & Blue essay contest will give you a chance to become the Chief for a day and
possibly implement your idea. Your idea for the essay should be about what you would do to
bridge the gap between the local community and the Cheyenne Police Department, if you were
chief for a day.
If you have been paying attention to national news, you are aware that some
communities have a clear divide between the residents and the police. In Cheyenne, we are very
lucky to work with our community and foster great relationships. We also realize the need of
input from our community to maintain and improve these relationships.
Now is your chance to step up and help bridge the gap. As a you become young adults, engaging
with your community is very important. It gives you the opportunity to have ownership and pride
in the place you live. It provides you the opportunity to give back and be a part of making your
town the best it can be for everyone.
Your 500-650 word essay is due by 11:59 P.M. on Thursday, October 1, 2020. Turn them in to
your school resource officer, or via email to the SRO Supervisor (email@example.com).

Monday, October 12, 2020, at 6:00 P.M. during a special event at First United Methodist Church
(108 E. 18th St.). More details on this event will follow later.
Two 1st place winners will be sworn in as Chief for a day and each will win a grand prize of $500
