Have ‘Coffee with a Deputy’

LANCASTER – Would you like to meet your Lancaster deputies, get to know them and bring problems in your community to their attention? If so, then mark your calendar for March 8.

Deputies from the Lancaster Station will join members of the city’s Public Safety Office for the first monthly, Coffee with a Deputy program.

The event takes place from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 8, at the Lemon Leaf Café, located at 653 West Lancaster Boulevard in Lancaster.

Owner-Pastry Chef Maria Grado graciously offered the use of her Café to hold the first event.

The Coffee with a Deputy program is designed to create a comfortable atmosphere where community members can meet with deputies from the Lancaster Station to address problems facing them in their community, or simply get to know them.

Team members from the City of Lancaster’s Safety Office will also be on hand to provide information about the Neighborhood Watch program, as well as contact information for other city services.

The Coffee with a Deputy program will be held on the second Thursday of each month going forward and will rotate to a new spot each month to highlight a different business.

(Information via new release from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.)

    I LOVE our sherrifs – and they do a very tough job and they do it well. and NO, I don’t work for the city, the county or R. Rex Parris. I just appreciate quality law enforcement.

      If you have to tell us you don’t work for the city, then you probably work for the city. Or you’re a badge bunny.

      As a generality, I tend to be supportive of our men and women in law enforcement. They do, indeed, have a very difficult and frequently misunderstood job that is absolutely necessary in a civilized community. The vast majority of deputies are honest, hardworking cops who really care about the community and really try to avoid using force wherever possible.

      We are, however, dealing with human beings and, as such, will have to deal with occasional honest (even if tragic) mistakes as well as the occasional bully with a badge problem. This latter issue is a real (and fortunately not as common as many people think) problem that needs to be constantly watched for. We just have to make sure to keep an even emotional mind and examine the facts in each case before we start automatically going to accusatory stances.

      Just my 2 cents. Agree with it, or not. Have a great day!

    I’m not sure it’s a good idea to get everyone pumped full stimulants in this particular situation…

    Remember citizens of Lancaster, if you decide to attend this event make sure you wear a bullet proof vest and keep your hands in view of the deputies at all times. As trigger happy as the LASD is you wouldn’t want to get them any reason to shoot you.

      Yeah James, that means ask your parole officer if you’re allowed to leave the couch and xbox game in your mom’s basement, and go down there and talk to the cops you’re so scared of.

        Too funny and too true. I’m so glad that when I see sheriffs, I’m relieved and comforted.

        Funny story. I’m actually attending the Police Academy at Allan Hancock College.. I just hate LASD. After living in the AV for over 20 years I’ve seen how crooked the members of their department really are. Granted, every department has their share of crooked cops, LASD just has the majority of them. Now continue to collect your WIC and Food Stamps as you live out your fulfilling life in the Antelope Valley.

          James, I’ve seen a lot of new feminine names here recently, all sticking up for the Lancaster Good Ol’ Boys. I wonder if they are city staffers, work for Parris, or are simply one person with a lot of user IDs. Something’s fishy about the onslaught.

          Allan Hancock College? Uh, ok there James. I’m sure you’ll be hired by a well respected police agency with your hatred of police.
