The success of Dayton Police Department’s inaugural Coffee With a Cop-Donuts with Dispatch on March 20 will likely lead to it being a monthly event, according to Dayton Police Chief Robert Vine.
A Northeast Mississippi hospice company says thanks to law enforcement officers, with a morning treat.
Trooper David Peters, Troop N Public Information Officer told about the event “Different things, some people relate some troubles that maybe they’re having in their community that we can take back to the station and tell our patrols. They drive around a little bit more, be a little more observant in that area.”
“I feel that the people that have come in today to sit and talk with the cops, they feel more comfortable with them,” McDonald’s general manager Samantha Moyer said. “If they have any questions, if they need any insight on something, they’re getting those answers and seeing that the cops aren’t as bad as social media or the news makes them out to be.”

Constable Mike McDonald and Councillor Lisa Bradley enjoyed answering questions and listening to concerns raised by the locals and business owners at the Coffee with a Cop, held at The Deli Café.
“It’s really important that people know, police officers aren’t always in the law enforcement mode, sometimes the only interaction you have is the ticket you got, we like to have them meet police officers in a different type of setting,” Michael Badger, Springfield Police Department said.
