LANCASTER – Local residents are invited to join officers from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station for some coffee and conversation on Thursday, March 10, as part of the “Coffee with a Cop” program.
It’s happening from 8 to 10 a.m. at Crazy Otto’s, located at 1228 West Avenue I, according to a news release from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“No purchase is necessary. Stop by, say hello, and get to meet the patrol deputies that respond to our city,” the news release states.
“Coffee with a Cop” is a national initiative supported by US Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members, one cup of coffee at a time.

Pro Sheriff Anti Eye in the Sky says
Some people commute to LA for a living and can’t be there. So here are some questions.
1. Why do we keep paying for the Eye in the Sky when it isn’t helping?
2. How many more deputies and programs could we have if we could use the $90,000 a month we are wasting on the Eye in the Sky?
3. Did someone really break into Rex’s house as he claims?
4. Besides voting Rex and his hand picked cronies out, what can citizens do to support our sheriffs?

Come on people, just give it a chance.

I’m giving it the chance they want. Designated “public faces” go out and have coffee with the sycophants. I stay out of the way. What more would you have me do?
While I love crazy Otto’s I will avoid the place when this event takes place. It’s dangerous to sit in the same room as cops armed with lethal weapons, let alone at the same table.
Tim Scott says
This program could be valuable if it weren’t for the fact that the place will be filled with baton polishing sycophants and the deputies directed to appear are chosen for public display and tasked with presenting themselves as if they are typical and there are no bad cops hidden back at the station. I had coffee with a deputy and it was a really useful experience, but it was on his own time with no gladhanding baton polishers alternating between kissing his butt and threatening me and he could be honest about the realities on the wrong side of the blue wall of silence.
dang Tim,, You can get some truth out of them on the golf course as well.
such as “the most dangerous person in the Antelope Valley is the black male between the age of 17 and 25”. I’m sure deputies were not considered in the comment made by deputies.
My apologize for the gender reference. I’m unaware how LASD deputies determine gender without asking for gender identity.
