New Jersey police offering free coffee to community
PITMAN, N.J. (AP) -- Police in one small New Jersey town are offering free coffee to residents as a means to try to strengthen ties to the community.
Officers in the southern New Jersey town of Pitman are planning to set up tents in the parking lot of a convenience store on Wednesday.
Chief Robert Zimmerman tells the Courier-Post that it's a way to build trust "during these most difficult times."
The community has not had any major conflicts between residents and police.
