About the 4P program

The City of Powder Springs describes its 4P program as follows:

The City of Powder Springs “Pastors, Principals, Parks, & Police” program, known as our 4P program, has become a staple outreach program throughout our community and surrounding area. The 4P program has evolved from what started as “Bridging the GAP” initiative to help build stronger relationships with our community to a complete engagement program that involves our community and is comprised of leaders from our area clergy, schools, parks & recreation, and police.

    Both surveys appear to be closed and there’s nothing on the Facebook page about this event. Is there somewhere else this event is documented to be happening?

      disregard, saw that comments on the survey closed on the 20th. Same info here on the city of powder springs webpage: https://www.cityofpowdersprings.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=844

    • It really didn’t seem to get much push-out on social media from the city. I ran the article mostly as a reminder after noticing it on the city’s website, and the announcement didn’t say how to access the event (I wound up phoning the city to find out it would be on the Facebook page). I didn’t realize the surveys had already closed, or would have omitted them from the article. It seems early to close a survey for an event a week later.
