Learn about Your Police at a Coffee with a Cop!

Coffee with a Cop gathering are a great place for officers and residents to get to know each other on an informal basis. Officers are happy to chat with residents about police work and what they do and answer questions about crimes, incidents or public safety issues in the community.

Some police departments in Dane County hold events weekly or monthly, and others host opportunities once or twice a year. The format can also be different for each one. At some events neighbors sit together and have one conversation with officers, or sometimes there’s even a guest speaker. At other events people can come and go and chat with officers individually.

This week about 30 residents attended the MPD East District Coffee with a Cop (in person and on Zoom) with questions about OWI arrests, how long it takes to get a warrant, what the CARES Team does and even why host Officer Graham decided to become a police officer!
