We’ve been telling you about Cortland’s Community Policing officer for about a year.
The position was created through a federal grant.
Officer Jesse Abbott is the Community Policing Officer in Cortland.
In a message to the community, Abbott says he looks forward to year two and says he intends to continue many of the same events as last year, such as Coffee With A Cop, the Klondike Hunt and Emergency Services Appreciation Day.
This year, he is planning a 5K Foot Pursuit, and next September, a 9/11 Memorial using pieces from the former World Trade Center.
Abbott says he and Deputy Chief Paul Sandy have obtained memorabilia for the 9/11 project.
