Unique Perspective on Policing From LA Police Officer

For several years we’ve had the opportunity to tell stories for Union Rescue Mission on skid row in Los Angeles. Anyone who spends significant time on skid row working with runaways, addicts, sinners, and saints, knows of Officer Deon at the LAPD. He is a constant presence and his faith is known by many. We went in with the question: “what can we learn about following Christ from someone whose job (police officer) is often hated by the people they’re trying to help?”
