EASTON — The Easton Police Department will host a Coffee with a Cop event Thursday, Aug. 15, at the Talbot County Senior Center, 400 Brooklets Ave.

The event will take place from 9 to 11 a.m.

The purpose is to provide residents with the opportunity to meet their local law enforcement officers, ask questions, voice concerns and learn more about the Easton Police Department.

This community outreach initiative is kept informal so citizens are comfortable discussing issues such as criminal activity, crime prevention and relationships with local police personnel. The goal is for the police officers to build relationships with residents, which hopefully will result in more positive interactions and a willingness to work together to prevent crime.

“Coffee with a Cop” is a national initiative supported by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are held across the country, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

For more information, contact Ptl. Kyle Willey of the Easton Police Department at 410-822-1111 or kwilley@eastonmd.gov.

Easton police are seeking local businesses interested in hosting a Coffee with a Cop Event. Contact Willey for details.
