Coffee with a Cop at Rainey's Corner (Photo)
WHITE CITY – The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) invites local residents to chat over a cup of coffee this Saturday. The “Coffee with a Cop” event will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. on March 23, 2019, at Rainey’s Corner, 4865 Highway 234.
JCSO plans "Coffee with a Cop" events quarterly, hosted by local businesses around the county. The informal, family-friendly setting allows locals to interact with deputies when they aren’t busy with emergencies, investigations, and other duties. There is no charge to attend and partake in coffee; attendees have the option to purchase food or other items on their own.
“Coffee with a Cop” originated in 2011 in Hawthorne, Calif., as a way for local law enforcement officers to engage with community members. Since then, the idea has spread across the United States and beyond.
