O’Neill Coffee was honored to host it’s very first “Coffee with a Cop” event Tuesday morning with the Shenango Township Police Department. Chief Jason Newton along with fellow officers
Jonathan DeCarmen, Joshua Natale, Justin Barnes, K-9 Officer Sven, and Detective Wherry were present to greet members of the surrounding community.
We were pleasantly surprised by the large turn out. Some community members stopped in just to say hello to the officers and share a cup of coffee. Others took the opportunity to share some concerns they had. It was a great occasion for everyone to mingle and get to know one another in a laid back setting.
In collaboration with the “First Lady” of the police department, Rachelle Newton, we are working on a second event to be held in the summer. We would like to provide the younger school aged members of the community a chance to come and meet the officers in a friendly environment. We are hopeful that this is an event that continues to expand and foster community growth.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the officers who took the time to attend and also thank the Sharon Herald for stopping by and doing a lovely write up of the event. Be sure to check it out here:
