Holden Police Department is hosting another casual, informal ‘Coffee with a Cop’ function Monday the 13th.

It will be held at the Dunkin in Holden at 1A and Route 46 between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.

And Chris Greeley, Holden Police Chief has invited police partners from the Penobscot County Sherriff’s Office, Maine State Police, Hancock County Sherriff’s Department and Maine Warden Service to make an appearance.

That is a lot of uniforms In one place at the same time.

How much coffee can you drink?

And it’s not just Coffee with a Cop. Penobscot County D.A.’s Office plus Federal law enforcement partners have also been invited to be there.

But wait there’s more. Any currently active members of the Military are also invited to attend.

That will be a busy Dunkin on Monday morning.

The purpose of Coffee with a Cop is to have community involvement and one on one interaction with police and citizens to encourage communication and to bridge any potential gap in community interactions. It is all positive.

Holden Police began participating in the National Coffee with a Cop program a few years ago, and this will be their 2nd event. The goal is to grow this event each year. They have invited more branches of law enforcement this year, and encouraged the public to put a face and a name with each officer.

No lectures, no speeches.  Just some one on one conversation.

Sounds good right. Don’t be late
