The California Highway Patrol, South Lake Tahoe office, South Lake Tahoe Police Department, El Dorado County Sheriff are inviting community members to come out and discuss community issues, have coffee, and build relationships on Tuesday, July 18.

The event goes from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on at the Starbucks at the South Y Center.

The Coffee with a Cop event provides the opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the Department’s work in El Dorado County’s neighborhoods.

“We hope community members will welcome the opportunity to ask questions, bring concerns forward, or simply get to know our officers,” said Lt. Terry Lowther. “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 local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve.
