Have ‘Coffee With A Cop’ This Week In Century

October 18, 2015

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office will host a Coffee With a Cop event this Thursday morning at the Southern Panhandle restaurant in Century.

The Coffee with a Cop event provides an opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about what the ESCO is doing in their neighborhood.

“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our deputies,” said Sheriff David Morgan. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

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 county, as local police departments, sheriff’s offices, and state police forces strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve. The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between law enforcement and community members one cup of coffee at a time.

Coffee with a Cop will be held Thursday, October 22 at 7 a.m. at the Southern Panhandle restaurant at 8420 North Century Boulevard.
