Local News

If you went through the drive thru at the Vinton Burger King today, you may have been greeted by a surprise.

This morning was the first ever coffee with a cop.

Law enforcement agencies around the area are pairing with local Burger Kings to host conversations with police so people can feel comfortable in a relaxed environment.

“I think it’s important for us all to know our law enforcement and to know they are hear to help us and protect us and just have a little conversation with them or also the time to have questions,” said Angie Chewning, Vinton Area Camber of Commerce.
There will be another Coffee with a Cop event at the Burger King on Franklin Road in Roanoke in the next couple of weeks.
