The program is called, “Clippers and Cops” and it’s a mentoring initiative started by City of Atlanta Police Detective, Tyrone Dennis. It originally started in Barbershops around the city, but Detective Dennis expanded his outreach program to local schools.
Detective Dennis is an ATF officer, dealing with some of the most dangerous gangs and people in the city. He likes to share his story and bring in other ex-offenders who have been down the wrong path, but were able to change their lives for the better.
Thank you Detective Dennis for your dedication to these young people and thank you, CIS of Atlanta, Site Coordinator Quintin Avery for being so invested in our community.
