The 2016 'Coffee with a Cop' events hosted by the Grand Junction Police Department were so successful, they've decided to continue them in 2017.

The events are an open format with no set agenda, so if you have some questions, concerns, suggestions, or just want to meet and visit with the city's police officers, this is the way to do it.

The next Coffee with a Cop will be Saturday, January 21 from 8:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. at the McDonald's next to Mesa Mall.

In the past, attendees have visited for a couple of minutes while grabbing a cup of coffee, while others have ordered breakfast and decided to stay for awhile. Either way, it's casual and always enjoyable.
