ACSO's Coffee With a Cop Coming to Hawthorne on Thursday 9/1/16

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office is partnering with McDonald's for our next Coffee With a Cop event this coming Thursday, September 1st from 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM.  

Residents are encouraged to stop by the new McDonalds (located at 5615 SE US301) in the new Love's Travel Plaza for a free cup of coffee and great conversation with YOUR local Deputies.

Coffee With a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the ACSO's work throughout the City of Hawthorne and its surrounding neighborhoods.

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 deputies are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between deputies and community members one cup of coffee at a time.
