PALMDALE – To accommodate the work schedules of local residents, Palmdale Sheriff’s Station has added a new evening session to its “Coffee with a Cop” program.
This month’s event will still take place at 9 a.m. Friday, April 4 at the McDonald’s, located at 131 East Palmdale Boulevard.
However, Palmdale Sheriff’s Station will hold a second “Coffee with a Cop” meeting, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Monday April 7, at Tom’s #27, located at 37959 47th Street East in Palmdale.
The evening session accommodates eastside residents, as well as those residents not able to attend regular “Coffee with a Cop” meetings due to their work schedules, said deputy Ray Wilson.
“Coffee with a Cop” is a chance for Palmdale Sheriff’s deputies and the residents they serve to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.
The meetings provide a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about law enforcement’s work in Palmdale’s neighborhoods.
“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our deputies. These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships,” stated Palmdale Sheriff’s Station Captain Don Ford.
“Coffee with a Cop” is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.
