Coffee with a Cop aims to bring community, RCMP closer together in Cowichan

Residents of the Cowichan Valley can have coffee with Inspector Ray Carfantan, head of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment

Residents of the Cowichan Valley can have coffee with Inspector Ray Carfantan, head of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment on Monday, Dec. 17 from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. at Island Bagel on Station Street in Duncan.

Coffee with a Cop is organized by Cowichan Community Policing Volunteer Programs and Services.

Taking time to meet at neutral locations provides the opportunity for real conversations about issues that matter, the group says. Community residents can sit down with officers and ask questions or share what’s on their minds.

“In a short time, citizens and police officers get to know each other and discover mutual goals for the communities they live in and serve,” says a press release.
