Ever want to ask your local CHP officer questions in a calm and open environment? Hollister-Gilroy California Highway Patrol (CHP) is hosting "Coffee with a Cop" to invite discussion on current topics and concerns. After hearing that the coffees were being held in Gilroy, BenitoLink asked Public Information Officer Chris Micelli if San Benito County might be able to have one too. Micelli welcomed the idea and set one up right away at Mars Hill Coffee House in Hollister.
The coffee conversation will be held Dec.13 from 9:00a.m – 11:00 a.m. Micelli wrote in an email to Benitolink, "We had a similar event in Gilroy at Sandy’s Café in November. The topic for discussion is wide open. We are however planning to discuss the increase in vehicular traffic on the rural roadways of San Benito County and the subsequent increase in traffic complaints our office has received lately." Micelli says he anticipates 20-30 people attending.
In a effort to provide thorough information, Micelli said, "We have County Roads scheduled to attend along with representatives from COG and the county board of supervisors' office.
Micelli explained, "Coffee with a Cop is as simple as it sounds. It is a chance to meet your local officers and have a cup of coffee with them. There are no agendas at this event, just an opportunity to ask questions, voice concerns, and get to know the officers in your neighborhood."
