Cocoa With A Cop

The Cocoa with a Cop drew children and adults to the 2019 event.

Columbia County residents are invited to join officers from Columbia County law enforcement agencies for a special Cocoa with a Cop event at the St. Helens Burgerville.

Officers from the St. Helens Police Department, Columbia City Police Department, and Columbia County Sheriff's Office will be at Burgverville on from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, February 12, to visit with the community, answer questions, and chat about community concerns. Burgerville is located at 715 S. Columbia River Highway, in St. Helens.

According to a release from the City of St. Helens, families can enjoy a free cup of hot cocoa, courtesy of Burgerville, while they speak with officers. There will be a special Valentine's Day cookie decorating station for children during the event.

Cocoa with a Cop is modeled after the popular Coffee with a Cop program which strives to build relationships between police officers and community members by bringing everyone together over coffee to discuss issues and learn about each other.
