A group of ministers has volunteered to help Indianapolis police with tasks such as keeping the peace at crime scenes and improving relations between law enforcement and the public.

More than a dozen ministers have joined the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department's Community Clergy program. Deputy Chief Patricia Holman says the ministers will serve as liaisons between police and the public at crime scenes such as police-action shootings or homicides.

The ministers participating in the program must clear a background check and complete a training class to be officially accepted into the program.
