The North Cowichan/Duncan R.C.M.P. introduced Coffee with a Cop last year, and after another successful installment, it may become a regular initiative.
Local police officers met with the public to talk about a wide range of topics, the two at the forefront centered around a new North Cowichan/Duncan R.C.M.P. detachment and the fate of the Shawnigan Lake station.
Inspector, Ray Carfantan began the program last year before transferring to the Okanagan and Sergeant, Chris Swain says he wanted to tweak the program.

He says it’s all about creating a conversation between the public and the police and two topics, in particular, keep coming up.

Plans are in the works to make this a much more common program, as Swain says members of the local detachment are looking at potentially making this a quarterly program.
However, no decision has been made regarding when or how frequent it will be.
