GLOUCESTER 一 Chief Edward G. Conley and the Gloucester Police Department Community Impact Unit invite the community to come have coffee and good conversation with members of the unit.
Friday, Oct. 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Gloucester Police Department Community Impact Unit, 67 Middle St., Gloucester, MA
The Gloucester Police Community Impact Unit will open its office doors to community members and will keep fresh coffee and pastries on hand so residents and business owners can enjoy a cup of joe while conversing with officers.
The Community Impact Unit was formed in February 2020, seeking to expand upon the work of the Angel Program to offer support and resources to anyone struggling with substance use disorder, mental health concerns, or those experiencing homelessness. The Community Impact Unit seeks to improve the quality of life of the residents of Gloucester.
The mission of Coffee With A Cop is to break down barriers between police and the citizens they serve by removing agendas and allowing opportunities to ask questions and voice concerns, all while police and citizens get to know each other better.
“I’m excited to meet members of our community for open and honest conversations without barriers or agendas,” said Lt. Nicastro. “Please come out, let us know how you think we can better improve our community, share concerns, ask questions, and get to know your local police officers.”
Anyone with questions can contact Lt. Jeremiah Nicastro at 978-325-5471 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
