The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan will host its inaugural Coptoberfest Thursday, October 1.
The goal is to educate the public about crime prevention and community-oriented policing initiatives and services.
The event is designed to encourage citizens to find out where their police precincts are located, visit the precinct, and meet their precinct commanders, officers and detectives.
Area precincts will be open to the public from 4-6 p.m.
Coptoberfest continues from 5-8 p.m. at SCMPD Headquarters at 201 Habersham Street. The public is invited to meet Chief of Police Joseph H. Lumpkin, Sr.
Members of the executive command staff, SCMPD’s Special Ops teams and McGruff the Crime Dog will also be on hand. There will be several displays highlighting the services provided by SCMPD and information on crime prevention including demonstrations, interactive opportunities, food and drinks.
