The book drive is one of several community programs the police department has been involved in recently. Police officers held Coffee With a Cop on Tuesday at McDonald’s, and on Thursday, March 30, Police Chief Jeffrey Katz is hosting a Town Hall meeting.
“We understand we have a unique perspective of where these resources need to go. We’ve been able to work as a conduit with our public and help direct their generosity to where it matters most,” Katz said at a news conference last week. “We wanted to really just express our appreciation as an agency. We’re making a difference. Our community is making a difference.”
