Juneau Police Department Lt. David Campbell takes pictures as JPD Chief Bryce Johnson speaks with Noelle Derse during a "Coffee with a Cop" at the Second Street Heritage Coffee Shop on Wednesday. It was the first time JPD hosted the event, which is a nationwide program that aims to foster positive interactions between police and citizens. Some 35 to 40 people turned out for the event over the course of an hour and peppered the four uniformed police officers - armed with a cup of joe - with questions on how to report suspected drug activity in their neighborhood, how to create neighborhood watch groups and how they can participate in National Night Out. "It was kind of a variety of topics," Campbell said. "There were no speeches or prepared comments. It was just making small chat and giving out advice as we could. Overall, it was a pretty positive event." JPD plans on hosting Coffee with a Cop on a regular basis at varying locations around town. They will advertise the next one on their website, www.juneaupolice.com.
