RCMP host second Coffee with a Cop

Nanaimo RCMP to hear community’s praise and problems over coffee Dec. 7

The Nanaimo RCMP is pleased to announce a second Coffee with a Cop event.

RCMP members recognize most of the public have never had the opportunity to meet with police officers informally, ask questions of them and find out more about the people who police their community. Coffee with a Cop is a way for the public to meet and engage with local police officers in an informal, neutral setting.

“We are always striving to build on our existing relationships with the public and this is just one more way to accomplish that,” Supt. Cameron Miller, Nanaimo RCMP detachment officer in charge, said in a press release.

The event runs Thursday, Dec. 7, 10-11 a.m. at Country Grocer located at 1800 Dufferin Cres.
