Hope RCMP inviting community out for coffee and a chat

Have you ever wanted to have a cup of coffee with a cop, and find out more about policing?

The Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment has been hosting “coffee with a cop” events throughout the area, and they’re inviting the community to come and pull up a chair.

Events have been held in Chilliwack and Agassiz already, and Hope’s is happening Wednesday, Aug. 14, at the Blue Moose on Wallace Street.

The event runs from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

“The RCMP are inviting you to pull up a seat and join us on August 14 to meet some of our local officers and enjoy a coffee with a cop,” Cpl. Mike Rail says. “We encourage folks to stop by, have a chat in an informal environment, and learn about the people who police our community.”
