Workshop held to strengthen police ties to community

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A workshop was held Tuesday at Chicago police headquarters to help strengthen the department's ties to community and church groups.

It's called Force for Good and the Chicago Police Department thinks the workshops can help reduce street violence.

Trainers help representatives from non-profit groups learn how to partner with police and drive positive change in some of the city's neighborhoods dealing with higher crime rates.
