If you can’t beat them, join them

Police from Hervey Bay and the Crime Prevention Unit attended Zaraffas coffee shop on Thursday this week for the first of their Coffee with a Cop for 2018.

Whilst the numbers were down from previous coffee with a cop events, this time two of the patrons were in fact New South Wales police officers.

Both officers from the Armiadale Criminal Investigation Branch were in Hervey Bay investigating two separate matters, and just happened to call in for a coffee.

After chatting to these two officers for a little while, it wasn’t long before the State of Origin wins for Queensland were mentioned… actually it was within the first conversation with these officers.

We jokingly indicated to them, that they had come to winning state and if they couldn’t beat us, then why not join us. Which they did, for a coffee that is.
