Niagara County Sheriff's deputies are hoping community members will join them for a cup of coffee — and maybe a donut.

All are invited to attend "Coffee with a Cop" from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on May 2.

The event will be held at the Tim Hortons on the corner of Walmore Road and Niagara Falls Boulevard in Wheatfield. The first 25 residents will get a small coffee and donut compliments of Judges and Police Executives Conference of Niagara County.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the Sheriff’s Office’s work.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has 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 is designed to break down barriers and allow for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction, while advancing the practice of community policing through improved relationships.

“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our Deputies,” said Sheriff Jim Voutour. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

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