Coffee with a Cop - Saturday, February 4

Join us for Coffee with a Cop on Saturday, February 4 from 8 am to 9:30 am at the Johnston Public Safety Building, located at 6373 Merle Hay Road. The goal of Coffee with a Cop is for Johnston police officers to get to know you, and for you to get to know our police officers. Every month, members of the Johnston Police Department are setting aside time to meet to have a real conversation about issues that matter. Come with specific questions for our officers or just ready to share what's on your mind. In a short time, we hope to get to know you and discover mutual goals that will continue to grow and improve our community. This month's coffee will also feature tours of the Public Safety Building. Come see where your officers work --- we hope to see you there!
