Monroe Police Department host Unity in the Community Volleyball Game

The Monroe Police Department is hosting the Unity in the Community volleyball game on Thursday, June 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. The game will be played at the Emily P. Robinson Recreation Center, located at 3504 Jackson Street, Monroe, Louisiana.

In attendance with the Monroe Police Department will be the Monroe Fire Department.

The volleyball game is to help bring awareness to the Impact Program. This program helps to support and build character in young men, aged 12 to 16. The Impact Program helps to ensure that the young men are attending school and receiving the help they need to succeed. Sargent Larry Wilson, the director for the Impact Program, said "It is basically designed to help young men determine what they want to do in life. We help them while they are in school. If they need a mentor or tutor, or anything, we give them a call, or we go to the school to talk to the school with permission from the parents."

For more information on the volleyball game or the Impact Program, call Sergeant Wilson at 318-512-5091 or the Monroe Police Department at 318-329-2600 or 318-329-2641.
