(MUNCIE) - Indiana Conservation Officers have finalized plans for a 3-on-3 basketball tournament aimed at forging a better understanding between police agencies and participants in the Road to Redemption Addiction Recovery program in Muncie.

The tournament will be May 13 at Tabernacle of Praise Church, 2200 E. Fuson Road, in Muncie. The tournament will begin at 9 a.m.

Law enforcement departments from Albany, Eaton, Gaston, Muncie, Yorktown, Delaware County Sheriff's Department, Ball State University, I.U. Health, and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources will be taking part.

Teams will consist of three police officers and one Road to Redemption member in the half-court, double-elimination tournament.

"This is a time of healing, togetherness and strength for our communities," said John Tyner, chaplain for Indiana Conservation Officers. "Drug addiction is an epidemic that has affected many families across our state. This tournament is about much more than basketball."

A fellowship and introduction dinner is scheduled for April 28 at Tabernacle of Praise Church. The chiefs from each participating agency also will attend to show support for the effort. The dinner will begin at 5 p.m.

Neither event is open to the public because of limited space.
