Join the City and Ellenbrook Police for a coffee and a chat

Published on 13 February 2018

The City of Swan has partnered with Ellenbrook Police to run a new initiative called ‘Coffee with Coppa.’

Local residents are invited to share a coffee or hot chocolate with members of the local Police Station and Ward Councillors for an informal, face to face chat.

City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said the first session would take place on Tuesday March 6, between 3 and 4.30pm at the Ellenbrook Library’s Sun Lounge.

“The idea of the new initiative is to provide the community with an opportunity to meet their local Police Officers and Councillors in an informal setting and have a good chinwag about community issues,” he said.

“It is also an opportunity for the City and Ellenbrook Police to provide the community with information on proactive crime prevention and personal safety.”

Pearce Ward Councillor Patty Williams said that the ‘Coffee with a Coppa’ sessions would also help to foster a stronger connection between the community and those who serve them.

“This initiative is all part of the City’s ‘Place’ approach, to help nurture positive relationships across all areas of the community and build a sense of place and community in Ellenbrook,” she said.

“It also gives us a chance to hear firsthand what is happening in the community and what is affecting them and their families.”
