California Highway Patrol officers and Alpine County Sheriff’s deputies are inviting community members to discuss law enforcement issues, have coffee, and build relationships.

Coffee with a cop will be 9-11 a.m. Friday at Mad Dog Café in Woodfords, according to CHP Public Information Officer Ruth Loehr;

“Coffee with a Cop provides an opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the Department’s work in Alpine County’s neighborhoods,” Loehr said.

The event will take place at the former Woodfords Station. Anyone with questions may contact Loehr at (530) 577-1001 or

“We hope community members will welcome the opportunity to ask questions, bring concerns forward, or simply get to know our officers,” said CHP Lt. Terry Lowther. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the U.S. 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.

“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,” Loehr said.
