The Boone Police Department has announced an upcoming series of "coffee with a cop" informational meetings.

The overall intention of this series is to help police to get to know the community better and to help the community get to know the police better as well. The specific intention of this series is to get information about the police department out to local citizens.

These events will be held inside the Town of Boone Council Chambers at 6:30 p.m. During each session, a Boone Police Officer will do a quick presentation on a particular subject and then the floor will be open for questions about that area of law enforcement. There will be demonstrations by Boone Police Officers and coffee will be provided by local coffee shops.

If you manage or own a local coffee shop and you’d like to help by supplying the coffee at one or several of these events, contact the Boone Police Department on Facebook or call Lieutenant Chris Hatton at (828) 268-6942.
