The program is a collaboration between Bundaberg Police and the District Neighbourhood Watch and provides residents an opportunity to have a friendly chat to discuss policing, community safety and more.

“A big thank you to Indulge Cafe for hosting our most recent Coffee with a Cop this morning,” Senior Constable Darlene Webb said.
