Throughout the day on Thursday, October 6, Major Wendy Stiver, Commander of Central Patrol Operations Division, and other CPOD officers will be out for the first Walk With a Cop event. The fun will start at 9 am at Boston Stoker and continue to various locations around downtown and the Oregon District:
9 am – Boston Stoker, 34 W. Second St
10 am – Third Perk, 46 W. Fifth St.
11 am – CareSource, 230 N. Main St.
3 pm – Newcom Park, Oregon District
4 pm – Oregon District Arch, E. Fifth St. & Pine St.
Officers are hoping to meet with citizens and members of the business community to engage in conversation, answer questions, and listen to ideas.
On Friday, October 7, CPOD and East Patrol Operations Division officers will celebrate National Coffee With a Cop day with events:
From 9 am to 11 am, CPOD officers will be inside the Wright Stop Plaza on South Main Street and available to talk with citizens, especially those who utilize Greater Dayton RTA services.
From 10 am to 12 pm, Chief Richard Biehl and Major Brian Johns, along with EPOD officers, will be at Evans Bakery on Troy Street for Doughnut With a Cop, a sweet twist on the popular Coffee With a Cop series. The concept of the event though remains the same, a chance to speak one-on-one with officers in a relaxed environment.
