The National Coffee with a Cop day took place on October 3, 2018 at the Blue Sparrow Kitchen. The Blue Sparrow's "nest" was a full house with local residents stopping in to speak with Police Chief Douglas A Robinson and Sgt Jennifer Frank. They also had a chance to enjoy a free cup of coffee and some pastry.
Photos were taken by me and Sgt Frank.
The purpose of this national program is to give the community a chance to get to know their Police Officers.

I have left below paragraphs in this story so that the reader can see the video if they wish, and also read the original announcement of the new community interest program that has been ongoing in other communities in the Upper Valley and has been met with success. It is part of a national coffee with a cop program. Please check out the video that explains the program and also the photos that were taken at yesterday's event.

Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee (on us) and get to know your local police officers as we answer questions about the police department, and hear your concerns about the community.
