Members of the public escaped the soggy weather for a coffee and conversation

The West Shore RCMP hosted its second installment of Coffee with a Cop this morning.

Roughly a dozen officers were at the Pilgrim Coffee House on Sooke Rd. in Colwood to engage with members of the community.

Some memebers of the public came in and sat down for a visit and some just popped in for a quick ‘hello’.

The local detachment treated customers in Pilgrim to coffee, snacks and conversation. There was no agenda or speeches, just a chance to have a discussion, ask questions, voice concerns and get to know officers in the West Shore communities.
