Indiana Woman brings smooth dance moves to the cafe with a cop

There’s rarely a dull moment at the monthly coffee meeting with an Evansville Police Department cop, and that proved to be the case again on the August edition earlier this week. .

What’s a coffee with a cop?

Every month, Evansville Police Department officers set up shop at an Evansville Donut Bank or Chick-Fil-A store on Crosspointe Boulevard for a few hours and invite you to stop by for breakfast and a chat. about whatever concerns you. before you go to work for the day. The conversation can be anything you want it to be. Notice something a little weird in your neighborhood that you’d like the police to look out for? Now is the time to let them know. Maybe you just want to know if they watch the same show as you or what they think of a particular sports team. The possibilities are endless and give you the chance to get to know the men and women behind the badge who have dedicated their lives to keeping us safe. Officers who usually stop by include Special Events Coordinator Taylor Merriss, Deputy Police Chief Phil Smith and Chief Billy Bolin himself. Mayor Lloyd Winnecke is also known to have stopped once or twice.

Evansville Wife Brings Smooth Dance Moves To August Cafe With Cop

One Evansville resident who is almost a lock for making an appearance each month is Marcie Hall. Marcie, who has Down syndrome, and her mother are usually among the first people to show up and usually stay until the end. While her mother usually sits quietly at a table enjoying a donut and coffee, Marcie is quite a social butterfly, pacing around the room greeting everyone and offering hugs to anyone who takes one. The whole place lights up when she walks into the room.

Marcie is also a big fan of the Evansville Police Department. She often brings handwritten notes with her expressing her appreciation for what they do which she personally delivers to Chief Bolin.

Case in point, when Coffee with a Cop returned in June 2021 after having to close due to the COVID pandemic, Marcie was there decked out in red, white, and blue with one of those notes that the Deputy Chief of Police has read aloud for everyone. To hear.

Marcie was back for this month’s edition which took place at Donut Bank on Washington Avenue, and this time she was ready to put on a show. Dressed in a fuzzy black jacket, matching hat and matching glove, all of which gave off a little sparkle from the lights, Marcie cleared the floor in front of the counter and, with Officer Merriss providing the music via his phone, proceeded to pull out some moves reminiscent of the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.

This isn’t the first time Marcie has wowed everyone at Coffee with a Cop with her dance moves. In June of this year, she was the clear winner of a quick, impromptu dance with Deputy Chief Smith.
