Porterdale police host Coffee with a Cop event

PORTERDALE, Ga. - Rep. Pam Dickerson braved below normal temperatures Monday morning to join Porterdale police Chief Jason Cripps and members of the Porterdale Police Department for “Coffee with a Cop” at the Porterdale Waffle House.

“It’s important that I support the law enforcement in my community," Dickerson said. "I think they’re doing a great job. I just would like to let everyone know they need to come out and talk to them just like I have. And it’s not that cold. Warm hearts, warm bodies”

Cripps said he wants to bridge the gap between law enforcement and the community.

“This gives the opportunity for the citizens to be able to reach me and say ‘Hey, what’s good, what’s bad? What can we do to change the community for the better?'" he said. “What are we doing that the citizens like, what are we doing that they don’t like? It’s kind of like a grade, kind of a report card.”
