Is Port Moody a safe community for you? Talk about it with local cops

PMPD and the city are co-hosting a free interactive session on Jan. 18 with residents aged 50 years and older.
Port Moody police (PMPD) are inviting residents aged 50 years and older to chat with officers about their community and how to keep it safe.

Port Moody residents feeling unsafe in their own neighbourhoods are being invited to speak their thoughts with local cops.

The police department (PMPD) is co-hosting a meet-and-greet next Wednesday (Jan. 18) with the city in hopes the public can provide concerns and opinions on how to improve outreach and engagement.

"Coffee and Chat" is specifically encouraging residents aged 50 years and older to connect with the PMPD's Community Services Section.

Officers with the unit are generally seen out at Port Moody events providing insight into policing and crime prevention.

As well, the section plays a role as a command post for when first responders are at a crime scene for longer than anticipated.

While officers also make regular routes throughout the community, the department has said these interactive events are more personal in helping potentially shy residents open up about their own safety.

PMPD and the city are set to bring "Coffee and Chat" to the lounge area at the Kyle Centre (125 Kyle St.).

The free drop-in event is scheduled to take place the morning of Jan. 18 from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
