Coffee with a Cop Visits District E-13 in Jamaica Plain

Superintendent Bernard O’Rourke, Deputy Nora Baston, Deputy Norma Ayala Leong, Captain Al Andres, along with the officers from District E-13 (Jamaica Plain) and the BPD’s Neighborhood Watch Unit were among the many recently gathered at JP Licks on Centre Street in Jamaica Plain to chit chat and converse with community members about public safety issues, concerns and plausible solutions. All who entered JP Licks during the Coffee with a Cop hour, which ran from 9:00am to 10:00am, were treated to a complimentary cup of coffee courtesy of the Boston Police Athletic League. Said Deputy Nora Baston, “Coffee with a Cop is all about building relationships. In addition to sharing a cup of coffee, today’s event gave community members a chance to get to know us better and share any concerns or issues they may have and do so in a friendly environment. It’s a great community event and great opportunity for us to better understand the issues impacting our community members.” So, special thanks to all who took us up on the offer and – again - special thanks to the Boston Police Athletic League (PAL) for picking up the cost of the java.
