Coffee with a Cop: Lakeport Police Department
10/4/2017, 7:30 AM-10:30 AM


Two “Coffee with a Cop” events hosted by local law enforcement agencies will take place in October.

The Lakeport Police Department will hold its Coffee with a Cop gathering from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, at Susie Q's Donuts at 414 South Main St. in Lakeport.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office's event will take place from 7 to 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 7, at Judy’s Junction, 375 E. Highway 20 in Upper Lake.

Coffee with a Cop is an event where police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee. 

There is no agenda or speeches, just a chance to ask questions, and get to know the men and women who protect and serve you every day.  

At the Lakeport event, there will be members of the Lakeport Police Department, Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Lake County Probation Department and California Highway Patrol on hand to meet with community members.

Members from every rank of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office will be on hand to meet with the public and participate in real conversation on Oct. 7. 

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, and has been implemented by many cities and towns across the country.

The program's mission is to increase community trust, police legitimacy and partnership building. 

Coffee with a Cop removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between law enforcement officials and community members. 

Instead it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere. This informal contact increases trust in police officers as individuals which is foundation to building partnerships and engaging in community problem solving. 

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