The Pizza with the Prosecutor and a Cop event will be held at Café Villa Pizza in West Long Branch and will include Prosecutor Gramiccioni, MCPO Chief of Detectives Michael Pasterchick, Jr., and officers from area police departments.
Prosecutor Gramiccioni said he has seen the success of the Coffee with a Prosecutor and Cop events that have been recently sponsored through the MCPO and he decided to add this event to bring law enforcement and community members together to discuss issues and get to know more about each other.
“These events open doors for community engagement outside of emergency situations that are usually the reason law enforcement and community members are brought together. Keeping with the spirit of community policing, events like these have successfully contributed to establishing trust between the community and law enforcement. The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office looks to have a role in bridging those gaps,” Gramiccioni said.
