Building positive relationships between law enforcement and our community

About Bridge the Gap

At the core of Bridge The Gap's mission is the teamwork and comradery that it takes to win. Coming together on a common ground with one purpose allows for understanding, support, respect, and trust.

The qualities of a successful basketball team are no different than what is needed for a thriving, safe, and progressive community.

Bridge The Gap's annual basketball tournament is that common ground. The teams are comprised of officers from various law enforcement agencies and young men and women.

Bridge The Gap also supports the community beyond the basketball court with free meals, health and wellness giveaways, as well as academic/career financial awards.
