Covington Police officers and Chief Andrew McCurdy enjoyed a chicken breakfast and some coffee with residents at their regular Coffee with a Cop event.

Coffee with a Cop is a regular event held by local officers in hopes of creating relationships with Covington families, answer residents’ questions and make themselves available to those in need. During the one-hour events, officers hand out stickers and possibly toys to children while talking to parents about local crime issues and safety tips.

Check out some photos from the event at the Covington Chick-fil-A on Monday, Feb. 10.
