Friday morning, Franklin Police Chief David Adams as well as other deputies will be gathering at Main Street Coffee and Yogurt for the first annual, “Coffee with a Cop” meeting.
“We hope that this builds better community relations and that through talking with the public first hand, we can improve our department,” said Chief Adams. “We want to listen to what citizens have to say about our community and the police department and we see this as an excellent way to do that.”
A local officer brought “Coffee with a Cop” to the attention of Chief Adams. The idea originated out of California and has since swept the nation as an opportunity for law enforcement agencies to work more closely with the community. From answering questions, to seeking advice on procedures and protocol, Chief Adams said no topic is off limits.
"We want to know how the public thinks we are doing, and what we can do to get better,” he said.
