A cuppa and conversation with a cop are on tap at Oak Bay Recreation centre April 24.

The small drop-in gatherings started a few months ago and are hosted at different sites throughout the community, said Chief Const. Mark Fisher.

Open to the public, Coffee with a Cop the last Wednesday of each month offers an opportunity to pose questions, raise concerns and connect with police officers in the community.

“It’s interesting the questions you get from people and the ages,” Fisher said. Participants span generations, from four -year-olds to folks in their 70s and the topics are as varied – from liaison officers in schools and Block Watch to fraud

“It changes depending on time of year and what’s going on in the community or the media,” Fisher said. “It’s good check in to the community to see if there are issues we haven’t thought about or are not aware of.”

This month’s Coffee with a Cop is at the Sports View Lounge at Oak Bay Recreation Centre on Wednesday, April 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 11.
