Have a cuppa with the police in Parkes on August 19

On Monday, August 19, 2019, officers from Parkes Police and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

All community members are invited to attend.

The event begins at 10:30am at the Roasted Kombi, corner of Clarinda and Church Streets, Parkes.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the Police work in Parkes and the Central West Police District.

"We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers," said Chief Inspector David Cooper, Officer In Charge of Parkes.

"These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships."

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative.

Similar events are held across NSW, as police commands and districts strive to make lasting connections with their communities.
