Make a date for a cup of black coffee with the people in blue!
On Thursday, April 11 from 4:00 p.m.- 6:00 p.m., members of the community are invited to meet officers from the Menomonie Police Department (MPD) at Caribou Coffee- Dick’s Fresh Market, located at 1408 9th St E, Menomonie, to discuss community issues and build relationships over a cup of coffee.
There will also be Easter face painting and other coloring activities for
the kids, and they can even meet the Easter Bunny! Dick’s Fresh Market will also host a Shop with A Cop donation drive from April 1 to April 21. Patrons are invited to bring in their donations to Caribou Coffee- Dick’s Fresh Market and receive a FREE size upgrade.
Similar events are being held across the country, as local police departments strive to enhance relationships and communication with their communities. The MPD adopted the program in 2016.
