Coffee with a Cop
Prescott Valley residents can meet with police officers to discuss community issues over a free cup of coffee. The Prescott Valley Police Department has been holding Coffee with a Cop sessions, which allow members of the public to talk informally with officers. Now the program has received national recognition. These events started with the Hawthorne, California Police Department 5 years ago in response to tensions between the police and community. Today more than 2,000 law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve participate in this program. Tomorrow morning at 8, Prescott Valley Police officers and community members will come together once again at the Back Burner Family Restaurant, located on Long Mesa Drive. Police Chief Bryan Jarrell says there are no speeches and no agenda, just conversation.
