Bigs in Blue

The Bigs in Blue program is built on the belief that trust and understanding in a community are developed on relationship at a time. A police officer who volunteers to be part of Bigs in Blue will be matched with a child facing adversity in the community. Many children see law enforcement officers solely as authority figures, not as regular people. Bigs in Blue will not only enable youth to bond with caring, supportive officers, but will also enable officers to get to know the community they serve.

All officers in the police departments, fire departments, sheriff’s offices, and emergency response agencies in Southwest Virginia are invited to make a difference in a child’s life by becoming a Big. Bigs in Blue volunteers can participate in any mentoring program in the service area they reside

Be a Big in Blue

Are you a Law Enforcement or Public Service officer? We invite you to be a Big in Blue. Our Bigs in Blue can participate in any program in our service area (Roanoke, Salem, and Pulaski County). Each Big in Blue is matched based on compatibility to children who have opted-in to the Bigs in Blue program. For more information about the programs available to Bigs in Blue, please click on the buttons that correspond with your community.
