— On Saturday May 17, officers from the Newton Police Department and community members will come together to informally discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink some coffee.

All community members are invited to attend. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Town and Country Deli, 46 Sparta Avenue in Newton.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Newton.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. The department recognizes that those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community.

Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. The department is encouraging residents to stop by, ask questions, bring concerns and simply get to know the officers.

The Police Department intends to regularly host these events. Check www.NewtonPolice.org and Facebook page for upcoming events and locations.

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 across the country, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.
