Coffee with a Cop
Engaging our community in public safety efforts is a top priority of the Aiken Department of Public Safety. We share the community's concerns and make every effort to address them. To that end, we have initiated a new program entitled Coffee with a Cop. It's a simple concept: Public Safety officers and community members come together in an informal, neutral space, like community restaurants, to discuss community issues, build partnerships, and drink coffee. Informal contact in a friendly atmosphere increases trust between public safety officers and the members of our community, which is critical to public safety and problem solving. Coffee with a Cop is an ongoing program that will be scheduled in locations throughout the City on a monthly basis. The next event is scheduled for December 12th, 9am, at Stoplight Deli, 119 Laurens Street NW. For more information, please contact Sergeant J. Bickel at 803.642.7620, or email@example.com.
