The Oro Valley Police Department announced a new program called “Coffee with a Cop.”  The first event will be held at Jerry Bob’s restaurant at 10550 N. La Cañada in Oro Valley on April 7, from 8 to 10 a.m.

Coffee with a cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.  The goal of this program is to break down barriers between the public and police officers.  The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public is during emergencies, traffic stops, or emotional situations.  Those situations are not always the most effective time for relationship building with the community.  Coffee with a cop allows for a relaxed one-on-one interaction between the community and your local police officer.
