Have you ever wanted to talk one-on-one with a Dayton police officer about what’s going on in the community? Or just get to know some of the men and women who patrol your neighborhood?
Dayton residents will soon have that opportunity, as the Dayton Police Department launches Coffee With a Cop–a chance to talk with police in a neutral, relaxed and comfortable environment (while enjoying a cup of coffee courtesy of the Department).
Now underway in 47 states across the nation, Coffee With a Cop is designed to build stronger relationships between police and the people they serve by offering an alternative to the emotionally charged, emergency situations that are often the context for police-community interaction.
Coffee With a Cop sessions are scheduled for:
Friday, March 27, 10 am to noon
UDF, 1217 Brown St.
Friday, April 17, 10 am to noon
Tim Horton’s, 959 Patterson Rd.
Advance registration is not required. Look for additional event dates and updates at daytonohio.gov or on the City of Dayton’s social media channels.
Business owners interested in hosting Coffee With a Cop sessions may contact Lt. Andrew Booher at 333-7446 or Lt. Joe Wiesman at 333-7448.
