Officers of the Wilton Police Department will be at Dunkin\u2019 Donuts in Wilton on Friday, June 3, to build relationships with the people they protect and serve, and discuss community issues over coffee. All community members are invited to attend the event, which will run from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Dunkin\u2019 Donuts at 35 Danbury Road. \u201cThe majority of contact law enforcement has with the public happens during emergencies or emotional situations,\u201d a police press release said. \u201cThose situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street,\u201d the release said. Coffee with a Cop aims to correct that by breaking down barriers and allowing for relaxed, one-on-one interaction. \u201cWe hope that community members will feel comfortable enough to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,\u201d said Wilton Police Chief Robert Crosby. \u201cThese interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.\u201d Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are held across the country. Anyone with questions may call Wilton police headquarters at 203-834-6260 and ask for Lt. Rob Cipolla, or email him directly at email@example.com.
