    In October 2018, Carson City became the 76th Bee City USA affiliate in the nation, and the first in the state – setting an example for the rest of Nevada to choose to promote pollinator populations too.

Coffee with a Cop, October 4th

On October 4th, Dunkin' Donuts, at 2190 East Williams Street, will host Carson City’s first “Coffee with a Cop” social from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m.  “Coffee with a Cop” is a growing initiative across America with over 650 law enforcement agencies in 47 states participating.  The goal of the meeting is to allow officers and the community a relaxed time to exchange topics and share information in a setting where crisis or other 911 related events are not taking place.  This is a time to get to know one-another and share interests.


The Carson City Sheriff’s Office uses many opportunities to educate the public about the mission and values of the department, but this agenda free event focusses more toward informal chatting with those professionals in the community who are actually serving you.  When you arrive, officers from the Sheriff’s Office and Nevada Highway Patrol will be on hand to share coffee over the table and learn more about what concerns you. 


When it comes to the effectiveness and efficiency of the local law enforcement agency, the trust and relationships shared with the communities are vital.  This lunch time social expands the current activities already in place, including National Night Out, Cops N Kids Open House, Shop with a Hero, Citizens Academy, and other activities that foster community relationship building.  And, says Sheriff Furlong, it just makes sense that we add this to our calendar.


Please stop by Dunkin' Donuts at lunch time on October 4th and share a cup…..
