Ice Cream with a Cop

July 23, 2015

Beginning Saturday July 25th and continuing throughout the remaining summer months, the Charlottesville Police Department will be hosting “Ice Cream with a Cop” at various city parks from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

We have partnered with a local ice cream truck, Mobile Delicious, to provide ice cream to the citizens that are at the park during the hours each event is scheduled.

Officers from our department will be at each park during these events to meet with the public, enjoy the park and have some ice cream with whoever wishes to join us. We are hopeful that during this time together the public, both adults and children, will engage in conversation with our officers and discuss whatever issues they feel are important.

Below is a tentative list of dates and parks.

July 25th Belmont Park
August 8th Forest Hills Park
August 15th Washington Park
August 29th Meade Park
September 12th Green Leaf Park
September 19th Tonsler Park

Ice cream is sponsored by the Charlottesville Police Foundation

CPD Officer Perspective

I have been a Police Officer for a long time. I have seen both joyful and horrific times thru the years; some dark days & rainy nights I have even asked myself if it was worth it, and did anybody really care? Thanks to the Foundation, I know someone does. Not just funding equipment or training or the many other things that have been done, but by letting us see all of you among us as we work. The outpouring of support from the community itself has demonstrated to us that there are still SO MANY good people in this broken world.
