What We Do
The Cops & Barbers Initiative was created in 2015 by Shaun "Lucky " Corbett (Barber) and Garry McFadden (Detective) in the wake of the Mike Brown Shooting as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the Police and community they serve as the barbershop is a trusted cornerstone of the community. The initiative has been credited to establish meaningful relationships thus making it easier to have much needed dialogue for sustainable community growth. To date, Cops & Barbers has grown from an idea, to an initiative that would gain national and local attention to now a thriving foundation. We are investing in our community by providing scholarships to high school students that are interested in the barbering profession and would not otherwise attend college. Our goal is to create a civic leadership academy.
