McDonald’s restaurant in Sallisaw will host “Coffee with a Cop” from 9 to 11 a.m. Oct. 3, in conjunction with the Sallisaw Police Department.
This event brings police officers and the community members they serve together – over coffee – to discuss community issues, learn more about each other and build relationships in an informal, environment. All Coffee with a Cop attendees will receive a free small cup of McCafé® coffee, courtesy of the Sallisaw McDonald’s.
Sallisaw Police Chief Terry Franklin said the department has been hoping to have such an event, and when McDonald’s offered, he accepted.
“This is a good opportunity for the public to meet and socialize with us, and see us outside the car,” Franklin said. “It gives the public the opportunity to come out and meet our new officers.”
Franklin said he will be at the event, and may plan more such events in the future.
David Hadley, restaurant owner and operator, said, “As a McDonald’s Owner/Operator, being involved in the community is the cornerstone of my business, and I look forward to hosting this event in conjunction with our local law enforcement. I hope that community members will attend the Coffee with a Cop event and feel comfortable to ask questions, bring forward concerns, or simply get to know our officers.”
Hadley’s family-owned McDonald’s restaurants will continue to work with local law enforcement officers throughout the year to host additional Coffee with a Cop events to encourage stronger relationships between police officers and community members.
