Building relationships... one cup at a time!
Coffee with a Commander brings District Commanders from the Arizona Department of Public Safety and the citizens they serve in the community together, over a cup of coffee, to discuss issues and learn more about each other.
No agendas. There are no speeches or specific topics. Events are relaxed, informal and are open for discussions about any issues the community residents feel are important.
No distractions. The District Commanders' radios and cell phones are turned off for the event so residents can have stress and distraction-free conversation.
No barriers. One-on-one conversations between residents and the District Commanders that oversee their community, are the best way to build trust and create mutual goals for the community.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety is a state-wide law enforcement agency that's primary objective is to patrol the highways and provide criminal justice support to surrounding law enforcement agencies, including city, local and tribal agencies. The geographical boundaries that the department patrols is comprised of 14 districts. The department has a presence in nearly every community in the state.
