Grab a Coffee, Talk Safety with Duke Police

'Coffee with a Cop' event takes place Feb. 26

Duke students, faculty and staff have a special opportunity for one-on-one interaction with the Duke University Police Department on Feb. 26.

Duke Police will host its annual "Coffee with a Cop" series from 1 to 2 p.m. in room 139 of the Biological Sciences Building on West Campus. The meeting, which will feature officers from the police department, provides a forum for Duke community members to meet and chat with Duke Police while also asking any questions about campus safety and security.

"We enjoy hosting these events because it's an informal opportunity to partner with us to focus on the value of safety and how we can all work together to create a safe campus environment," said John Dailey, chief of Duke Police. "Safety is a shared responsibility and building relationships with the community is an important part of that."

Along with Dailey, the meet-and-greet session will be attended by David Williams, crime prevention manager; Eric Hester, crime prevention officer; and Maj. Sara-Jane Raines, support services commander.
