The Canton Police Department has scheduled Coffee with a Cop from 9-11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, at Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea, located at 302 N. Canton Center Road, in Canton.
These sessions are open to the public and provide a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Canton’s neighborhoods and business districts, according to a spokesman.
The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies or stressful situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for relaxed one-on-one interaction, noted Deputy Canton Chief Scott Hilden.
The Canton Police Department will host multiple sessions throughout the community this year. Anyone with a business or organization interested in hosting a 2-hour session of Coffee with a Cop, is asked to contact the police department at (734) 394-5401.
Requirements to host a 2-hour session of Coffee with a Cop include having a Canton location that is open to the public and providing coffee for those who attend.
