Coffee with a Cop & Winter Walk on the Riverwalk @ Cranford Heritage Corridor Riverwalk
On Sat, Feb. 13th, 1PM – 3PM, the Cranford Police Department Outreach Officers and Cranford Riverwalk Restoration and Preservation Alliance, in partnership with the Cranford Downtown Management, will be hosting Coffee with a Cop and Winter Walk on the Riverwalk. Cranford residents of all ages are invited to pick up complimentary hot chocolate or coffee and walk Cranford’s historic Riverwalk while having a casual conversation with officers at the Cranford Police Department. The goal of the walk is to allow the Cranford Police Department to interact positively with the citizens they serve each day, as well as build relationships with the community.
Participants can pick up a complimentary beverage offered by the Cranford Police Department at the Cranford Heritage Plaza, located at the intersection of South Avenue East, Lincoln Park East and Centennial Ave. Everyone will then be welcomed to walk the paved one-third of a mile Riverwalk along the Rahway River from the Heritage Plaza to Droescher’s Mill Park and waterfalls on Lincoln Avenue.
“Coffee with a Cop is a way for members of the Cranford Police Department to interact positively and proactively with the citizens they serve, building relationships and addressing community concerns through casual conversations,” Chief Ryan Greco of the Cranford Police Department said.
Officer Ali Muhammad of the Community Outreach Division highlighted the benefit of this upcoming event in light of this past year. “COVID-19 has been devastating to our nation, so this opportunity to once again interact in a safe manner while informing others of the good works of the police and community members has us hopeful for a brighter 2021,” he said. “We will have informational handout pamphlets regarding safety and new programs coming in the future.”
“One of the valuable aspects of Cranford’s historic Riverwalk, which is part of the Union County parks system, is the central location,” explains Michael Mason, president of the Cranford Riverwalk Restoration and Preservation Alliance. “It is an easy place for Union County residents to gather, and its rich history and beautiful scenery lends itself to social walks such as this. We are honored to have the Cranford Police Department use our walk for their outreach efforts.”
The hopes of the Cranford Riverwalk Restoration and Preservation Alliance is that more individuals will be interested in walking the Riverwalk, learning about Cranford’s unique past while helping to work restore it at their monthly restoration days, held the second Saturday of each month from March until November.
All ages are welcomed. Masks are required. Social distancing will be enforced. The Cranford Police Department will have pamphlets available to inform participants of the many activities the Department offers to residents.
