Calimesa Police Department Coffee with a Cop Community Event

On July 31, 2014, the Calimesa Police Department and community members will be coming together in an informal setting at a local restaurant to discuss community issues and build relationships while enjoying a cup of coffee. All community members are invited to attend. The event will take place from 8:00 AM until 10:00 AM on July 31, 2014, at the Kafe Royale, located at 1007 Calimesa Boulevard, Suite K, Calimesa.

Coffee with a Cop provides an opportunity for community members to ask questions, learn more about the Calimesa Police Department and meet your deputies. There will be no agenda or speeches, just an opportunity to voice your concerns and get to know the deputies in your neighborhood.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that deputies are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. "It is our anticipation the interaction between officers and the community will foster unity and build partnerships," said Calimesa Police Chief Geoff Raya.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the country, as local police departments, sheriff's offices, and state police forces strive to make lasting connections with communities they serve.

The Calimesa Police Department would like to thank Kafe Royal in advance for their support of this event. Anyone with questions about the Coffee with a Cop event can contact Lieutenant Pete Ortiz at the Cabazon Sheriff's station at 951-922-7100.
