Fairfield City Library and Police join forces

Published Friday, 10th June 2016

Fairfield City Library has launched an exciting new partnership with Fairfield and Cabramatta local area commands.

The aims is to strengthen ties between the police and the community and promote messages of safety and crime prevention.

The partnership has produced two new events:

1. Feeling Safe?

Cabramatta Police will provide a special free presentation on:

  • Internet Safety
  • Personal Safety
  • Residential Safety

In a stimulating and interactive presentation, Police officers will provide the community with all the recommended advice and techniques on how to be safe. The event will be held at the Whitlam Library, Cabramatta, on 23 June at 10.30am.

2. Coffee with a Cop

Fairfield Library will host officers from Fairfield Local Area Command (LAC) to provide the library’s first Coffee with a Cop event. There will be no agenda or speeches, just a chance to ask questions and voice concerns.

“Coffee with a Cop offers community members the chance to talk about issues with police officers in a relaxed setting,” Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said. “These events are usually held in venues such as shopping malls, so it’s great that Fairfield Library is able to be a host.

“I’m looking forward to joining the police from Fairfield LAC so everyone can get to know their local police officers.”

Coffee With a Cop will be held at Fairfield Library on 28 July at 10am.

Both events underline the Library’s goal of connecting the community with critical service providers to produce a more informed community. Bookings can be made in person at any Fairfield City Library location or by calling 9725 0365.
