“We decided to try Coffee with a Cop in March this year, and it was well received by the community. They liked talking one on one with officers in a neutral environment, enjoyed some coffee, and learned more about what the neighbourhood is involved in and upcoming events,” stated Alana Usakov, Resident Engagement Coordinator for the Ford City Neighbourhood Renewal project.
The event runs from 4pm to 6pm with with the tree lighting taking place at 5:45pm.
You are asked to bring a can food donation for the food bank.
