I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra Police Department invites residents to 'Coffee with a Cop'

The Alhambra Police Department will host Tuesday "Coffee with a Cop," a meeting for residents who would like to ask questions and talk to police officers in an informal setting. The event is part of the agency's community outreach efforts, which include social media discussions on Facebook and Weibo — the Chinese version of Twitter —and informational community meetings.

Police officials hope that "Coffee with a Cop," which will take place 6-8 p.m. in the Kohl's parking lot at Fremont Avenue and Mission Road, will help residents feel more comfortable with local law enforcement, according to Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department.

"In a lot of societies around the world, people come here, they're afraid of law enforcement or they've been groomed that you don't do that, you don't talk to a cop," Johnson said. "We're human beings. It's OK to come up, shake our hands, have a cup of coffee with us, ask us questions about our job, whatever it is. And that's what this is all about."

The police department is using social media and events like "Coffee with a Cop" to create two-way communication with Alhambra residents, according to Johnson. "Chief [Mark Yokoyama] likes to hear from the people of the city of Alhambra," Johnson said. "Weibo, Facebook, Twitter, it's all that feedback. And this is just another way of doing it."
