Moreno Valley Police to host Coffee with a Cop on April 29, 2015
Program offers opportunity to meet local officers an discuss community issues

Moreno Valley - On April 29, 2015, officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee.

Coffee With a CopCoffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the Department’s work in Moreno Valley neighborhoods.

The majority of contacts law enforcement officers have with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” said Police Chief Joel Ontiveros. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the county, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.

The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.

All community members are invited to attend. The April 29th event will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Farmer Boys located at 15991 Perris Boulevard, Moreno Valley. Please contact Officer Jay Willner with questions: 951-486-6720 or jwillner@riversidesheriff.org.
