Liberty police chief says Coffee with a Cop event bridges gaps

Local News

People in Liberty Township had the opportunity to chat with their men in blue over a cup of Joe on Friday.

Liberty police held their second Coffee with a Cop, this time at Plaza Donuts on Belmont Avenue.

Chief Toby Meloro said he feels strongly about putting the community first. He said this event is a great way for officers to interact with community members and build a relationship with those they serve in a low-key environment. 

“It gives an opportunity to show people that we’re here for them. We’re people just like everyone else, and we’re here to help you,” he said. 

The department plans to hold Coffee with a Cop twice a year.

Their next one will be sometime in the fall.
