Coffee with a Cop Hosted by Bloomingdale McDonald’s

Officers from the Bloomingdale Police Department and community members came together to discuss community issues and enjoy a cup of coffee.

 

On Wednesday, June 28th at the McDonald’s in Bloomingdale, officers from the Bloomingdale Police Department and community members came together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink some delicious McDonald’s coffee.

Coffee with a Cop provided a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in the Bloomingdale neighborhoods. The Officers also handed out coloring pages, stickers, pencils and police car magnets to the community.

The children that stopped by had a chance to go outside with Officer Acosta who was happy to show them how the lights on the Police Car light up and also all the neat things inside the police car.

The Bloomingdale Police would like to remind the community to check out the free “Summer Concert Series” on Tuesdays until August 22nd in Old Town Park located at 111 3rd Street in the heart of Old Town. Also, be sure to stop by the Farmers Market on Thursdays through September 28th 3PM-7PM located in the Tiffany Point west parking lot (NW corner of 3rd St. and Schick Rd.) across from the Bloomingdale Post Office.

A special thank you goes to Officer Tim Roberts and Community Relations/Crime Prevention Officer Dawn Odoi, who coordinated the Coffee with a Cop event, as well as all the other officers that came and served coffee and mingled with the community.
