Members of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department were out in the community Friday for the monthly Coffee with a Cop event.
Sheriff Rob Maciol, along with a few deputies, were at One Realty located at the New Hartford Shopping Center. Coffee and donuts were provided for anyone that attended.
For more than two years, the department has made an effort to get out in the community and engage with local residents. These events are organized by the Community Outreach Team, a group that was created to bridge the gap between the police and the community.
“It’s just an opportunity to mingle with the public, no agenda, no specific reason. Just come out here, here’s who we are here are some of the things that we do. A lot of people aren’t familiar with what the Sheriff’s Department offers and it’s an opportunity to show people that we are human beings,” said Maciol.
