Coffee with a Cop returned with a Christmas flavour at Armada Dandenong Plaza.

Victoria Police members were joined by members of the public – as well as Santa – to discuss issues and queries over a free cuppa from Muffin Break.

The event has been a regular event since 2016.

“Our Coffee with a Cop events have been well received by customers and retailers, in particular young families and senior members of the community,” plaza centre manager Anne Johnson said.
