Coffee With A Cop

                                 

On January 6, 2015 officers from the Dixon Police Department and community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships and drink coffee. All community members are invited to attend. The event is from 7:00am until 10:00am on January 6, at the McDonald’s restaurant located at 207 North Galena Avenue. Please contact Officer Chris Cox with questions: 815-288-4411 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the Dixon Police Department and its officers. The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed one-on-one interaction.


Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by The United States Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are being held across the county, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve. The program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time.

Cops and Bobbers Fun at Lowell Park

The annual Cops And Bobbers fishing derby was held on August 25th, 2012 at Lowell Park and was a great success! We had 42 children participate this year and 28 fish were caught. Seven year old Ellie Meyers did great and pulled in five channel cats (with the help of her Grandpa and his home made cheese bait). She won the biggest fish award and she also won for number of fish caught.

Big thanks to Officer Les Shaw for his tackle and angler knowledge. Some participants needed help with setting up their poles with line and other tasks. Officer Dave Gerdes also came out of retirment to assist us. A good time was had by all.

Thanks to everyone who came out for this fun event!
