Postal Patron ‘Coffee with Cop’ stirs plenty of interest by Tara Wiese At a recent Coffee with a Cop event, St. Joseph Police Chief Joel Klein was asked his favorite part of the morning. He shared a heartwarming response: “Four children, Hannah Mondloch and her siblings, arrived and presented me with scrolls. On each scroll was hand-drawn artwork. That made my day.” One scroll in particular had a message that read “To St. Joseph Police, May God bless you and your families. Thank you for all you do!” Klein made those comments during Coffee with a Cop, a morning event held July 24 at McDonald’s in St. Joseph. The event was sponsored by the St. Joseph Police Department and by the Metro Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association. It was a time for St. Joseph residents to join Klein in a discussion of topics such as the upcoming National Night Out, the new traffic diversion in front of McDonald’s, traffic concerns on Highway 75 and the Metro Citizens Police Academy that will take place in September. Besides discussing serious concerns, there was also time for just getting to know Klein on a one-on-one basis. photo by Tara Wiese Residents discuss topics such as upcoming National Night Out, the new traffic diversion in front of McDonald’s, traffic concerns on Hwy. 75 and cooking with St. Joseph Police Chief Klein at the Coffee with a Cop event July 24 at McDonald’s in St. Joseph.
