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 Family Fun Festival event is like no other-including activities such as basketball, bubble soccer, the famous "BTG dodge ball" contest, educational, health and wellness booths, door prizes, raffle drawings and a ton of giveaways. The free food, games, bouncy houses, face painting and many other activities are a big draw for the entire family.

Bridge The Gap provides safe, fun, and family-friendly opportunities to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and our community. Whether it is during one of our various community sporting events or "Bridge The Gap School" programming with law enforcement, the goal remains the same; safe and fun relationship-building.

Additionally, Bridge The Gap provides financial awards to individuals pursuing higher education; as well as, stipends to those entering the police academy.
