Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Patrol officers held a “Coffee with a Cop” session Tuesday morning in the lobby of Haven Behavioral Hospital at Elizabeth Place.

The event gives citizens a chance to ask officers questions or voice their concerns.

Officers say they have had a positive response.

“It gives people an opportunity if they don’t necessarily have a reason to call the police or report a crime. It gives them an opportunity to meet police officers that work in their neighborhood, that work where they live. It’s a great opportunity for everyone involved,” said Lt. Eric Sheldon of the Dayton Police Department.

The department holds monthly Coffee with a Cop events around the city.
