Palm Coast - Palm Coast Parks & Recreation and the Flagler County Sheriff's Office are partnering to offer 'Coffee with a Cop' on Monday, Feb. 18, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Palm Coast Community Center located at 305 Palm Coast Parkway NE. It is free to attend but please pre-register at

Coffee with a Cop is a movement designed to help break down the barriers in communities. This program allows citizens to sit down with a member of law enforcement to discuss their concerns or issues, uninterrupted, while enjoying a cup of coffee in a casual, neutral environment.

"Coffee with a Cop is a great way to bring the community and the deputies together to talk about issues or just get to know each other," said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. "We look forward to speaking with many local residents and hearing what's on their mind so that we can work together to make Flagler County the best place to live, work and visit."

This is the first time the City and Sheriff's Office have partnered for 'Coffee with a Cop,' but the two agencies have ongoing team efforts for programs such as Women's Self-Defense and the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program. The Sheriff's Office provides law enforcement services for the City of Palm Coast.
