NEWBERRY — Local law enforcement and community members joined the Newberry County Sheriff’s Department for Coffee With a Cop last Friday morning.
Coffee With a Cop gives community members a chance to get questions or concerns answered while sitting down, enjoying a cup of coffee, grabbing a donut and having conversation.
“These kinds of events are great to have because it’s an informal event and there is no set agenda,” Sheriff Lee Foster said.
Foster said there was a decent turnout for Coffee With a Cop considering the threat of Hurricane Matthew looming over South Carolina.
Foster wants the community to know that events like Coffee With a Cop show that police officers are here to serve the community and that they are more than just people who wear a uniform.
In the future, Foster hopes to hold more events like Coffee With a Cop to bring the community together.
