FAIRFIELD, NJ — More than 200 cups of coffee were given out at the Fairfield Police Department’s “Coffee With a Cop” event held on Wednesday in conjunction with the Fairfield Municipal Alliance Committee and Manhattan Bagel.

Several Fairfield police officers were on hand at Manhattan Bagel greeting patrons as they came in and buying them a free cup of coffee as a way to thank the community for their support of local law enforcement.

“The three hours that our officers got to spend having coffee with our citizens is a great investment in helping to expand even more, the community policing philosophy that our department embraces everyday,” said Chief Anthony G. Manna. “It was priceless to the see the immediate reactions of patrons walking into the store, seeing so many officers and then being told that the coffee was on the police department. The confusion that were on their faces immediately changed to smiles, thank yous and a lot of conversation that may have never taken place. It’s a great program.”

The national event gives patrons the opportunity to meet officers in a different way than the way they might typically—like at medical calls, at crime scenes or during enforcement actions. Patrons were given the opportunity to also inform the officers about any issues that they may be concerned about.

The cost for the project was provided by the Fairfield Municipal Alliance Committee and the chief said the idea was embraced by the owners and staff of Manhattan Bagel.

July 5, 2018

More than 240 years ago, our nation’s founders envisioned a country where individuals could forge their own destinies and not be constrained by the circumstances of birth. The essential concept was that people could govern themselves and participate in democracy, or what Benjamin Franklin and others called “a great experiment.” The vision was bold and has flourished as the ...

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
