SEMINARY, MS (WDAM) - The Seminary Police Department continues to create opportunities for citizens to meet their officers.
"Coffee with the Chief" provides residents with an opportunity to personally meet their police chief and other officers in a friendly, informal setting.
For the month of August the department is switching things up a bit and bringing along a few school education members. With school starting in a week, Chief Michael Kelly wants to give parents the opportunity to meet two new faces in the school district, an assistant principal and a principal. Covington County Superintendent of Education Clay Anglin will also be attending "Coffee with the Chief".
"If there are some concerns from some community members about the school itself or things that we've done well or not so well this year going into a new school year hopefully we can bring some light upon those things," said Anglin.
Residents are encouraged to stop by Gigi's Bakery and Café located on Main Street on Saturday, August 1 at 7:30 a.m.
"We want to listen to people, we want to be transparent in what we do and the only way we can do that is to provide opportunities for our citizens to be able to have face to face interactions," said Chief Kelly.
"Coffee with the Chief" is held at least once a month in Seminary.
