Having coffee with a cop

Citizens from all over the county will be able to learn about the activity of the police directly from police officers and to inform these about the problems they face or to make suggestions to them within the project “Coffee with a cop”. The project that is supported by the Hanns Seidel Foundation was launched in Chisinau on December 8, in a meeting of the police and a group of students of the State University of Moldova, IPN reports.

Daniel Mazepa, senior specialist of the General Police Inspectorate’s General Public Security Division, said that by such a project they aim to remove the barriers between police officers and members of the community, for the benefit of both of the sides. The concept is implemented in a number of states and the Republic of Moldova intends to undertake it. A year ago, a similar event was staged on a trial basis. From now on, such meetings will be held regularly all over the country.

The event involved young people from the faculties of psychology, law, journalism, social assistance, international relations and others. The students were curious to learn more about the activity of the police, the challenges they face and how they cope with these. They also wanted to know about experienced extreme situations, the measures taken and the mechanism of cooperation between the police and the citizens.

General Police Inspectorate chief Alexandru Pânzari told the students that he didn’t dream of becoming a cop as he wanted to become a sailor. However, after the Nistru conflict of 1992, he went to the Police Academy. It is very important for each citizen, when they see a police officer on the street, to feel safe and to have confidence in this.

Corneliu Groza, head of the Chisinau Police Division, stated the personnel of the police subdivisions include not only jurists, but also psychologists, journalists, specialists in foreign relations, etc.

Marin Maxian, head of the General Public Security Division, said the Division, besides its key mission, also performs prevention activities that refer mainly to children and also to the whole community. The interlocutors today play the role of experts as this exchange of information is needed to identify the shortcomings and to remove them. The police will take into account the discussed ideas so as to improve cooperation with the community.
