Residents invited for “Coffee with a Cop” on Sept. 17

Meet local RCMP officers at the Osoyoos McDonald’s from 10 a.m. until noon

South Okanagan-Similkameen residents can enjoy a hot cup of joe with members of the RCMP on Sept. 17 at the Osoyoos McDonald’s.

“Coffee with a Cop” is allowing residents to connect with officers from the Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen RCMP Detachment from 10 a.m. until noon.

This will be third time the RCMP for the region have held this type of get-together with the communities they serve. Homelessness, mental health and addictions issues and traffic concerns were on the minds of residents in Penticton at the last Coffee with a Cop event in August.

“It’s just about building that connection. We want people to know, if they need help or they have a question, they can come to us anytime, so we encourage people to call 911 or our non-emergency number, but we also encourage them just to talk and give us an idea of what their concerns are,” said Insp. Ted De Jager detachment commander of Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen Regional Detachment.
