The Chico Police Department hosted their 2nd Annual National Coffee with a Cop Day, Wednesday.

The officers were able to meet face-to-face with community members to build a more inclusive and connected community while discussing significant issues.

The free event was held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at participating coffee shops:

  • Starbucks, 246 Broadway St.
  • Mondo’s Cafe, 951 Nord Ave.
  • Coffee Ranch, 1288 E. First Ave.
  • Country Morning Bakery & Cafe, 2625 Aztec Dr.
  • It’s a Grind, 6 W. Eaton Rd.
  • Cal Java Coffee Roasters, 2485 Norte Dame Blvd.

Chico locals expressed concerns about homelessness, burglary and fraternity annex houses. They also discussed ways to improve community public safety.

The goal of the event was to connect the community to CPD.

“Most importantly we are putting a face and personality to the officers of Chico,” said Mark Hoffman, member of the Chico Police Target Team.
