'Coffee with a Cop'
‘Coffee with a Cop’ promotes police, community relations
“This is easy, we can do this,” Noyes said he remembered thinking, struck both by the humor — “it sounds kind of crazy,” he conceded — but more importantly by the potential of what “Coffee with a Cop” could do to improve the relationship between his agency and the public.
Waterville Valley was among the first New Hampshire police departments to hold “Coffee with a Cop,” Noyes said, adding that its success was noticed by the program’s founders at the Hawthorne Police Department, who contacted him last fall and asked Waterville Valley to hold a New England-wide forum.
“Anything, you name it, they can talk about it,” said Noyes, adding it is held in a friendly, non-threatening environment.
“The coffee’s on us,” the chief said, and if someone would like to bring a child to a gathering, hot chocolate can also be provided.
