The city of Powder Springs “Pastors, Principals, Parks & Police” program, known as the city’s 4P program, has become a staple outreach program throughout the community and surrounding area, according to a city statement.

From what started as a “Bridging the GAP” initiative to help build stronger relationships with the city’s community, the 4P program has developed into a complete engagement program that involves the city’s community and is comprised of leaders from area clergy, schools, parks & recreation and police.
