Beach High School Football Players Participate in Coffee with a Cop Program 

Body

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - What a better way to talk with local law enforcement officers than over a cup of coffee. Saturday, Savannah Chatham Metro Police officers opened up to those in the community for Coffee with a Cop. Those at McDonald's on Montgomery Street said this was positive for the community. "We want to bridge the gap between communication for anyone who wants to talk to the police cops," said Sherrell Brown with the SCMPD. Officer Brown said this is a perfect way to talk with them openly and candidly about any issues going on that police are unaware of, and they can do it in an informal way. "Cause if we don't know, we have no way of addressing their problems," shared Officer Brown. And plenty of people did just that, expressed their opinions on different things going on in the community including crime. Harry Cook, whose been in Savannah for almost 70 years, says this is the start. "The main thing we need to do is cut down on crime and maybe this is a way to help it," said Cook. And there were also young people out this morning. Bobby Tyson, a Beach High School football player, said it's better to build a good relationship this way over a bad relationship in the streets. "It will be great for the entire community cause it shows the cops, even though there's problems other places in the world the cops are on our side here in Savannah, so I think its a great way to see their not our enemies," explained Tyson. And speaking of athletes, Gator Rivers of the Harlem Globetrotters who was also enjoying a cup of coffee, said this is a step in the right direction to get kids back on the playgrounds and to feel safe in their own neighborhoods. "The kids need to understand that law enforcement is there for their protection, their job is to protect and to serve," said Rivers. Officer Brown said its all about building relationships and having a familiar face you can trust. "The community, they're the eyes to what we don't see. You know they see it, they live it and we rely on them to communicate that information with us so we can protect them. Protect and Serve," said Brown. Beach High School Thanks the Montgomery Street McDonalds for being an active community partner and allowing us to participate.
