Coffee with a Cop

On Monday, July 20, 2015, officers from the Colusa Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and enjoy a cup of coffee.

All community members are invited to attend.

The event will be at Market Street Grill, 415 Market Street, Colusa starting at 9:00 am.

‚ÄúThe Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity to converse with members of the community in a natural, non-threatening atmosphere and allowing them to communicate concerns,‚ÄĚ said acting Colusa Police Chief, Josh Fitch, ‚Äúcommunity members will also have an opportunity to meet their police officers, and to build trust within the community.‚ÄĚ

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happens during emergencies or emotional situations. These situations are not always the most effective times for a relationship building with the community. Additionally, some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street.

Coffee with a cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed one-on-one interaction.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held throughout the United States, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.

Chief Fitch hopes that the event will be well attended and to make the event a monthly feature.
