Englewood police are hosting the popular "Coffee With a Cop" get-together on Dec. 12.
The majority of contacts the public has with law enforcement comes during emergencies or emotional situations -- not always the best times for relationship-building, Deputy Police Chief Gregory Halstead said.
The highly successful "Coffee With a Cop" program provides a relaxed, informal setting where community issues can be discussed and relationships built, the deputy chief said. No cell phones, devices, or distractions -- just coffee, cops and conversation.
Come meet Englewood's finest from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Noches de Colombia, 90 West Palisade Avenue.
"Coffee With A Cop" is a national initiative supported by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.
