Meet the Beat Cops

Throughout the year, the Wilkinsburg Sanctuary Project in partnership with Chief of Police, Cookie Coleman and Rep. Ed Gainey’s office offers an informal gathering to build relationships between the police department and members of the community.  One or two officers sit at a round table, while every 15 minutes members of the community move from one table to the next in order to meet every officer present.  The questions, such as “what do you like about being a police officer”, are designed to help break down the barriers between the police department and the community.  It is our hope that these conversations will help our community ease the tension between police departments and communities of color which is happening across our nation.
