Good morning! Rise and shine and get Coffee with the Chief, specifically Clayton County Police Chief Kevin Roberts at the Dunkin Donuts at 6633 Tara Boulevard near Mt. Zion in Jonesboro. We inadvertently left this item off the Monday Morning Roundup! Meet Chief Roberts and find out about the new police social workers (a story The Clayton Crescent broke) and other initiatives he’s taking with the department.
