COLCHESTER, Vt. (WCAX) Colchester Police enjoyed their coffee Wednesday morning with members of the community.
The event at the Colchester McDonalds celebrated National Coffee with a Cop Day. The goal was to connect local police departments with their community while sharing a cup of coffee. The event is designed to engage discussions while also letting people meet their police officers. Tom McHugh of Burlington was one of several people who thanked officers for serving their community.
“I had a brief conversation with them — it was great. I thanked them for the work that they do, as I know it can be a tough job as a police officer and the work they go through,” McHugh said.
“It’s been great to just talk with some folks in the community, and what better way then over a cup of coffee and a muffin,” said Colchester Police Chief Doug Allen.
The nationwide event was held at three McDonald locations in Vermont.
