‘Coffee With A Cop’, Thursday 6th February
On Thursday 6th February between 10am and 12pm local police will be at the Shingle Inn at the Pines.
Coffee with a Cop is a community-based initiative designed to foster positive police community relations and build trust and respect by extending an open invitation to members of the community to sit down and have a coffee with their local police officers in a relaxed and personable atmosphere.
Coffee with a Cop events have been highly successful in breaking down barriers with culturally and linguistically diverse communities and in troubled areas where traditionally, communication with the Police has been problematic or strained. The events are often organised in response to a local issue or concern ie. road safety, property security, home security, unlawful use or entry of motor vehicles.
The event provides an opportunity for local police to acknowledge the issue and address concerns in collaboration with the community.
Members of the community are encouraged to come and meet local police.
