Steamboat Springs police brew up October Coffee with a Cop

The next installment of Coffee with a Cop will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 12 at MountainBrew, 427 Oak Street.

Members of the Steamboat Springs Police Department will be on hand to meet with members of the public, and MountainBrew will be providing free brewed coffee during the event. In addition, a Spanish to English translator is expected to be available.

"After two successful events at McDonald's, we've moved downtown this time to mix it up a bit and keep it fresh, just like a good cup of coffee," said Detective Shane Musgrave. "As these events grow within the community, we're looking to work with a variety of locations in an effort to reach residents across the city."

Coffee with a Cop is designed to allow open, two-way dialogue between the community and the Steamboat Springs Police department and its officers. The program allows community members to ask questions and learn about the men and women who serve Steamboat Springs.
