SURFSIDE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Surfside Beach Police and Fire departments will partner with local businesses to host Coffee with a Cop on Friday, Feb. 20.

The event will allow the community and public safety departments to build trust and discuss issues in an informal setting. The event will be held at Big Apple Bagels, across from Town Hall, at 116 Highway 17 North in Surfside Beach from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

“Most people's experience with public safety officials are unfortunately during emergencies and these situations are not the most effective way to build relationships,” Police Chief Rodney Keziah said. “We hope that these face-to-face meetings will help people see us as approachable.”

Coffee with a Cop is part of national initiative that's supported by the United States Department of Justice. For more information contact Chief Rodney Keziah at (843) 913-6351.
