HOLT, Fla., Jan. 23, 2019–The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is inviting Holt residents to join one of their deputies for a cup of coffee Friday from 8 to 10 a.m. at Sherry’s Diner.
Known nationwide as “Coffee with a Cop,” these informal coffee klatches are a way for local law enforcement to connect with the members of the community they serve.
“We do these events periodically as a way to simply touch base with our residents and get a chance to meet folks one on one in a friendly, comfortable setting,” said Michele Nicholson, public information officer.
There’s no set agenda and all topics are on the table, so to speak.
“Our deputies just like a chance to have conversation on any topics of interest, and/or answer questions people may have, as well as just connect with the community,” she said.
While other communities in the surrounding area have enjoyed these informal get-togethers, this will be the first time a Coffee with a Cop event will be held in Holt.
