Title: Ice Cream with a COP event in Winters on August 23rd
On August 23rd, Officers from the Winters Police Department would like to invite the community members of Winters to an Ice Cream with a COP event. Held at The Lester Farms Bakery (606 Railroad Ave) from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, this event provides an opportunity for community members to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues and build relationships. Attending community members have an opportunity to ask questions, get to know the Officers in the community, and learn more about the department’s work in Winters’ neighborhoods.
The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members forging lasting connections with the community the department serves. Community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Events like Ice Cream with a Cop break down barriers and allow for relaxed, one-on-one interactions which are the foundation of community partnerships.
