Senior Constable Matthew Green catches up with Santa Claus at Fairfield LAC's Coffee with A Cop event on Thursday at Neeta City.

More than 100 people attended Fairfield LAC’s Coffee with a Cop event at Neeta City on Friday.

The event – a chance for community members and the police to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss issues – breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interactions for residents to ask questions and learn more about police work.

Santa Claus even made a special visit at May’s Place Cafe as officers from Fairfield and Cabramatta met with the community.

Fairfield Police Superintendent Peter Lennon said these type of interactions with the public are the “foundation of community partnerships” in contrast to the majority of contact law enforcement has with the public which happens during emergencies or emotional situations.
