Sylvester Police hold Coffee with Cops event

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Sylvester Police are working on making stronger relationships within their community.

Friday morning, the police department held their first Coffee with a Cop event at Burger King on East Franklin Street.

Residents were encouraged to meet and greet officers over breakfast. Officers say it's a great opportunity for citizens to get to know the police serving their city."Most of the time they only see us on the side of the road, doing traffic stops or you know a call to service." said Paul Klein, Officer.

"When everybody knows each other, know the kids, know the families and the animals, it's more of a friendly family atmosphere," said Christy Siliatrault.

Sylvester Police hope to have more events like this one to connect with the community.
