It’s a simple concept. Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. In over 175 cities and towns in 36 states, Coffee with a Cop has done wonders for community trust, police legitimacy and partnership building.
Community members come to a local Coffee with a Cop for a variety of reasons, but no matter why they come to their local event, they are likely to leave with a more positive impression of their local law enforcement agency. One of the keys to Coffee with a Cop’s success is that it removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between law enforcement officials and community members. Instead it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere. This informal contact increases trust in police officers as individuals which is foundation to building partnerships and engaging in community problem solving. So pull up a chair and grab a cup of coffee….

Citizen's Police Academy
The Citizen’s Police Academy was established to enhance the community’s awareness of our police department and to provide them with a better understanding of what we do as officers. The program will offer a fun and educational way to inform you, the citizen, of the challenges and rewards that our officers experience during their careers as police officers. The academy will take place one night per week for ten weeks. Upon graduation, graduates will have the opportunity to join the Oxford Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association. This is an organization that serves as an advisory board and liaison between the community and our department.
Class topics will include the proper carry and safe handling of firearms, being aware of your surroundings, types of firearms, and self-defense tips. The class is limited to thirty (30) students so please reserve your seat as soon as possible. The cost of the training is FREE!
