God’s Word Strengthens Inner City Police Officers
A new resource helps police officers find spiritual strength in the Bible.

In November, American Bible Society launched “Strength for the Street,” a Scripture engagement resource for law enforcement officers in Philadelphia. The booklet pairs Scripture passages with testimonies from local police officers, making “Strength for the Streets” a useful resource for police chaplains as they minister within a grueling professional environment.
“I think this resource will have a profound impact on policing in our city,” says American Bible Society’s Philadelphia Mobilizer Rev. Dr. Malcolm Byrd. “It will be an inspirational source that will contribute to their police practice—even how they live out their faith at home.” Byrd says he hopes to see “Strength for the Street” roll out to additional U.S. cities in the months ahead.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
