FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Members of the Fayetteville Police Department worked overtime this weekend. If you drove by Garvin Street and Fayhart Road on Saturday, you could have seen officers picking up trash on the side of the road.

The police department partnered with the Massey Hill Community Watch, a nonprofit volunteer organization that participates in local projects.

The Village Baptist Church of Fayetteville also took part in the clean-up event.

This weekend, law enforcement agencies across the country are participating in Faith & Blue weekend, a time "resolution and reconciliation." Faith & Blue is a collaborative effort to build bridges and break biases, according to an event flyer.

On Friday, the department held a discussion at the town hall called "Crucial Conversations," where they discussed community policing.

As a part of the Faith & Blue weekend, the department is also hosting a Toy Drive in conjunction with the Cumberland County Department of Social Services.
