Hail to the Chief

Claremont Police Chief Shelly Vander Veen reacts as she is presented with a birthday cake by Sergeant Robert Ewing on Tuesday during the department’s Coffee with a Cop event at Sanctuary Coffee. The birthday celebration was a surprise for Chief Vander Veen, although she did wonder why so many people, including many city employees, were attending Coffee with a Cop. The chief will be retiring next week so in all likelihood this was her last public event as a police officer. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
