VIDEO: Dozens Participate in Coffee With A Cop Event
GLOUCESTER - Community members met with the Gloucester Township Police Department, at a local Starbucks to talk about their concerns while drinking coffee and eating desserts. The department says the event, Coffee With A Cop, helps connect the officers with the community on many levels. “My favorite part is connecting with them and finding out what is on the average citizen’s mind, what are they looking at, what are their concerns? Just taking it from whatever questions they have and finding them some resolve,” said Jennifer McLaughlin, Community Relations Officer. After these meetings, the officers bring the feedback to the station to discuss in an effort to come up with more ideas for future community involvement. Along with voicing their concerns, residents of the community also came to express their appreciation for the township's officers.
