The Beaver County Community and Law
Enforcement Coalition (BCCLEC) is a community-based
initiative of the Franklin Center of Beaver County.
BCCLEC is dedicated to improving the relationship
between the community and law enforcement. Now, more
than ever, the community needs to take an active role in
addressing and easing the tension between the community
and police. BCCLEC strives to engage members of the
community at large, connect with the law enforcement
community, and recruit minorities and women to law
To further this effort, the BCCLEC is planning their annual
event – Beaver County Unity Games. This event will
team law enforcement officials and students between 8th and
12th grade from across Beaver County to compete in various
field day activities. BCCLEC is partnering with various
youth groups and law enforcement agencies, from the
Beaver County area. The goal of this effort is to promote the
mission of the BCCLEC and connect local youth with local
law enforcement officials in a fun and exciting way. This
will help to foster relationships from an early age and to
encourage our youth to consider careers in law enforcement.
The Beaver County Unity Games will be held at
Community College of Beaver County, 1 Campus Drive,
Monaca, PA 15061.
Saturday, July 15, 2023, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
We need your help!
We are seeking youth to participate in this event. to register

About Unity Week in Beaver County
In 2020, the Board of Commissioners of Beaver County issued a proclamation setting aside a week of unity. The Commissioners established an annual week of unity, designating the second week in July as Unity Week in Beaver County. Unity Week in Beaver County Celebration is a week-long gathering to connect, celebrate and advance the existing good powered by a joint initiative between Inclusion, Diversity and Awareness Council (IDAC), and the Beaver County Community and Law Enforcement Coalition (BCCLEC), dedicated to unifying Beaver County citizens through courageous conversations, a unity walk/vigil/pledge, and ending the week with our annual unity games an event filled day designed to build and maintain community and law enforcement relationships.
Uniting Through Action and Beyond:
Wear something Black for unifying Beaver County
Make a connection with someone outside your circle.
Work to create dialogue and meaningful change in our community that is representative of all people.
Wear something Yellow for optimism, enthusiasm, happiness, and positivity.
Wear something orange—as a tangible representation of the supportive, universal message that our society wants kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
Wear green for harmony, healing, hope, and compassion
Wear red for continued strength and positive attention to unifying Beaver County.
On Friday, you are invited to pause for 10 minutes of quiet reflection, on unity. Take time to breathe, separate from the monotony and focus on how you can help make Beaver County more unified.
Wear Blue for peace, compromise, empathy and trust between police officers and community members.
The relationship of the police to the community should be harmonious both ways. The community relies upon the police department to “protect and serve” and the police, in return, rely upon community support and cooperation in order to be effective. When communication and trust deteriorate, tensions build between the community and police and undermine their shared goal of safer communities. #LETSSTOPTHEUSVSTHEM!
