On June 13, Rick Pizzi opened up the grounds of Pizzi Farm to help the Waltham Police Department launch their "Coffee With a Cop" initiative by introducing a "Cops & Cones" event. The first event was such an overwhelming success that Mr. Pizzi decided to repeat the event on July 11. Pizzi announced that there will be a third event, "Cops & Cones Summer Send Off" on Monday August 15 from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM. The slogan for these events is "Talk to a Cop - Get a Cone".
The concept of the Coffee With a Cop program affords an opportunity for police officers and members of the community to come together – sometimes over a cup of coffee – to discuss issues and learn more about each other. For Waltham residents, this is a great opportunity to get to know the men and women who serve our community, share concerns, and build a stronger relationship with one another.
