“We want to be partners with the police department so we

can have a safe environment and area around here in Beech Grove,” said General Manager Sirenia Halliburton. “This is our first one with the Beech Grove Police Department. It’s a great day. These are great, happy police officers. They’re doing an excellent job. It’s better than I expected. They’re fast learners. Especially Deputy Chief Maurice. He acts like he’s worked here before. Mercuri, he needs a little more training.”

Halliburton said the restaurant hopes to invite the police again, and is planning an event with the Southport Police Department, with a toy drive, for July.
