Coffee With A Cop

 

 

Derry Township Police to host Coffee with a Cop
Program offers opportunity to meet with local officers and discuss community issues

On July 27, 2017 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm officers from the Derry Township Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

All community members are invited to attend.
The event begins at 5:00pm on Thursday July 27 at
The Cocoa Beanery located at 1215 Research Blvd.
Hummelstown, PA.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity
for community members to ask questions and learn
more about the police department’s work within
the township.

The majority of contact law enforcement has with
the public happens during emergencies, or
emotional situations. Those situations are not always
the most effective times for relationship building.
Some community members feel that police officers are
unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed,
one-on-one interaction between officers and community members.

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members.

Please join us at The Cocoa Beanery for simple
conversation and delicious coffee.
We look forward to meeting you.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services

Positive Ticket Program

The Derry Township Police Department will be starting the second year of the “Positive Ticket Program,” which runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  During this time period, officers will be handing out positive tickets to adolescents in the community who are observed doing something right.  Each ticket comes with a certificate for a small treat at a local establishment.

At the end of the summer season, a handful of random tickets will be drawn as grand-prize winners.  These grand-prize winners will be announced at a Board of Supervisors meeting after Labor Day, and the prizes will be handed out at that point.

Derry Township Police would like to acknowledge The Hershey Company, Hershey Entertainment and Resorts, Fuddruckers, Texas Roadhouse and Turkey Hill for their donations to this year’s Positive Ticket Program.

If you would like to make a donation to this program, please contact Officer Andrew Herr at (717)534-2202 or ajherr@derrytownship.org.
