The Winston-Salem Police Department is inviting pastors, ministers, priests, rabbis, imams and other religious leaders to attend an informational lunch Jan. 9 to learn about a new initiative called "Pastors on Patrol." Participating religious leaders would receive training and then be encouraged to ride along with patrol officers in the hope that they could de-escalate confrontations, especially in their neighborhoods.
