Residents Invited to Have Coffee with a Cop


Residents are invited to attend Coffee with a Cop at McDonald’s, 1100 E. Crawford St., on Tuesday, August 23 from 8:30 a.m.-10 a.m.

Coffee with a Cop provides individuals with an opportunity to ask questions, voice concerns, and get to know the officers serving their community in a relaxed
environment. The national initiative, which aims to improve relationships between police officers and community members, was integrated into the Salina community by Chief of Police, Brad L. Nelson, in 2014.

Coffee with a Cop is one of the most successful community oriented policing programs across the country, and is supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.
Since its inception, more than 2,000 communities have held events.

For more information about Coffee with a Cop, visit or contact the Salina Police Department at (785) 826-7210.
