CELEBRATE NATIONAL COFFEE WITH A COP DAY
JOIN PURCELLVILLE POLICE OFFICERS FOR A CONVERSATION & CUP
PURCELLVILLE, Va. September 22, 2021— On Wednesday October 6, 2021, all members of the community are invited to attend the Purcellville Police Department’s National Coffee with a Cop Day events. We will be hosting two events; the first located at the Carver Center, at 200 E Willie Palmer Way, Purcellville from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and the second at the Starbucks, located at 140A Purcellville Gateway Dr., Purcellville, VA from Noon to 2:00 p.m.. Each year on the first Wednesday in October, National Coffee with a Cop Day brings men and women in uniform together with their communities to connect over conversation and coffee.
Coffee with a Cop provides an excellent opportunity for members of the community to ask questions and learn more about the Purcellville Police Department’s work throughout the town. Many interactions between the public and law enforcement occur during emergencies or emotionally heightened situations. These are not the best times for relationship building, and some community members may not feel comfortable approaching officers on patrol. Coffee with a Cop bridges the gap between citizens and law enforcement and allows for a positive, relaxed interaction.
“Coffee with a cop provides our officers and residents with the opportunity to engage one on one in a constructive informal environment. It is my hope that the community always feels comfortable enough to ask us questions, share their concerns, or simply get to know our officers” said Chief Cynthia McAlister.
If you have questions about this event, please contact the Purcellville Police Department at
540.338.7422, or email@example.com.
The Town of Purcellville, Virginia
“Purcellville-your small Town, where history and progress intersect and people prosper,” is an award-winning town of over
10,000 residents located in Loudoun County, approximately 50 miles west of Washington, DC. Having received the prestigious Siemens Sustainability Award for Small Communities, Purcellville continues to be honored for its green initiatives with most recently being the Tree City USA recipient for the 12th year. The Town was reaffirmed as an AAA rated community by S&P Global Ratings, the highest credit rating possible, and is recognized as one of the safest towns in Virginia. Once a stop along the W&OD rail line, which has been converted to a multi-use trail from Alexandria, VA to Purcellville, the town has maintained its historic old-town feel through the restoration and maintenance of its many downtown structures, reflecting the Victorian architecture popular during the early 1900s. Today, Purcellville is the economic hub of western Loudoun County and a popular weekend destination for antiquing, equestrian activities, farmer’s markets, wineries, breweries, distilleries and restaurants.
