Hey, where’s my donut?
In an effort to break down barriers and foster dialogue, SLOPD is implementing its inaugural Coffee with a Cop on May 12, the nation’s most successful community-oriented policing program. The program has helped build trust and open dialogue between PDs and their communities, since some haven’t had the bestest relaysh with their peeps in recent years … ahem Michael Brown, ahem Eric Garner, ahem Freddie Gray, ahem last week’s Jordan Edwards, ahem — OK now our throat’s dry, someone get us some water. We know SLO feels like the boy in the bubble at times, but even the happiest city in America could benefit from an open line of communication with our Five-0. Next Friday beginning at 9 am at the LOVR Blackhorse, Chief Cantrell plans to continue them monthly in each SLO neighborhood, events to be posted on their website and FB. No questions are off limits. Sooo … about those donuts?
