CAMP VERDE – Camp Verde Marshal Nancy Gardner normally doesn’t treat the department’s monthly Coffee with a Cop as an opportunity to discuss preordained topics.

But the Verde Valley has been hit this year with several counterfeit cases. So the Marshal’s Office will partner with the Camp Verde Business Alliance on Thursday, Sept. 28 for a counterfeit bill informational and awareness meeting. And Gardner will make sure to talk a little bit about the meeting on Monday.
