New Iberia Police Chief Todd D’albor stopped by his local McDonald’s to share a cup of coffee with a couple dozen of his constituents.
“Coffee with a Cop” is a program designed to encourage members of the community to engage with local law enforcement officers. The goal of the program is to promote transparency and have an open dialogue with the community.
“We think that a face to face setting kind of paints everybody in a good picture, makes the officers a little more approachable. You see them at McDonald’s, you might be a little more prone to talk to them on the street. Things like that. Just trying to, all around, give a better image as best as we can.”
