Police opening the floor to residents at night markets

By McIvor Times

Do you have a few words of wisdom for your local police? Or maybe you want to know how many officers work at the Heathcote station?

Officers from Heathcote and Bendigo will be present at the Heathcote Friday Night Markets for Coffee With A Cop.

The coffee events are designed so members of the public can speak to their local police officers without having to enter a police station.

Long-standing Heathcote police officer Sergeant Matt Hunt will be present at the event and said he was hoping to learn how the community was feeling about crime rates and public safety, among other things.

The police officers will be free and happy to talk from 5pm to 7pm.
