Public Safety professionals from the City of Phoenix Police Department, City of Phoenix Fire Department, and Maricopa County Sheriff's Office are answering the call to be mentors to youth in our community. The Bigs in Blue is a one-to-one mentoring program that connects our police with youth in communities throughout our nation, building strong, trusting, lasting relationships. The result of these relationships can help build stronger bonds between law enforcement and the families they serve.

He met David who not only changed his life, but also reassured Joey's mom Alletta that he'd be there for Joey. And then the unimaginable happened.
