State Member for Terrigal, Mr Adam Crouch, has encouraged community members to attend the annual coffee with a cop event.
The event will take place at Jamaica Blue, Erina Fair, at 10:00am on Thursday, February 23.
“Coffee with a cop provides an informal and neutral setting for the community to come together and discuss issues that matter to them with our local police,” Mr Crouch said.
“We hope to never find ourselves in a situation where we have to deal closely with our police, but it is vitally important that we understand the work they do to keep us safe,” he said.
“Unfortunately the majority of contact we do have with our police is during times of emergency or distress, and this is not an optimal time to build relationships.
“As a Government, we want to make sure that every member of our community feels that they can approach our cops, and so I urge residents to drop by and have a chat with officers from the Brisbane Water Local Area Command.”
