‘Coffee with a Cop’ set at McDonald’s

Posted

The community was able to meet several law enforcement officers at last week’s National Night Out. In an effort to continue to create a good relationship with the public, members of both the Cleveland Police Department and Bradley County Sheriff’s Department will participate in “Coffee with a Cop” on Wednesday.

“It’s vitally important the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office continues to participate in community events such as Coffee with a Cop to allow the community to have positive conversations with their public servants,” said Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson.

“This is a nice way for us to have an even better connection with the men, women, and children that we are pledged to serve and protect, and let’s them get to know these special police officers,” added Cleveland Police Chief Mark Gibson.

This will be the second consecutive year the two departments have worked together to allow the public to get to know the deputies, officers, detective, and others.

Last year, “Coffee with a Cop” was hosted at Panera Bread. This year, local McDonald’s restaurants will be the sites for the event.

The “Coffee with a Cop” will be from 9 a.m. to noon at three area McDonald’s: North Lee Highway at Stuart Road, 25th Street, and APD-40 at McGrady Drive.

“The Sheriff’s Office is grateful to McDonald’s for sponsoring this event at every location within this area to ensure law-enforcement’s relationship with the community remains healthy. Residents are encouraged to attend this outreach program in order to meet and ask questions to our deputies in an informal setting,” said Watson.

Gibson agreed the “Coffee with a Cop” will be a great way to meet the law enforcement officers in the city and county, and hopes to see many area residents come and enjoy meeting these important men and women who serve with the Cleveland Police Department and Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.
