There were no agenda, motive or speeches. Just a barbecue and a chat.
That was the scenario on Wednesday as Fairfeld police officers met with residents at their BBQ with a Cop event at The Crescent.
The free event was an extension of their Coffee with a Cop initiative and part of the command's commitment to community engagement giving locals a chance to meet their local officers and share any concerns.
The event was supported by South West Sydney Mens' Shed who organised and manned the barbecue.
