At least 50 residents, including some Cub Scouts, turned out for Coffee with Cops Thursday morning at Lewis Kingman Park.

The small, informal meet-and-greet ran from 7-10 a.m., just enough time to mingle with members of the Kingman Police Department before the day’s summer heat hit uncomfortable levels.

“It was a good turnout,” said Patrol Lt. Bob Fisk. “Some came to gripe, some to thank us. Most of the discussions were positive.”

The KPD’s Mobile Command Center, a motorcycle and patrol vehicles were at the park for curious citizens to get an up-close look and talk to Chief Bob DeVries, Deputy Chief Rusty Cooper, detectives and officers.

Motorists on Andy Devine Avenue had no reason to be alarmed by all the law enforcement vehicles.

The occasional get together is a chance for residents to voice concerns, share their gratitude and learn more about the department.

The next Coffee with Cops is scheduled for 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. October 26 at the KPD office at 2730 E. Andy Devine Ave.
