The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is inviting the community to have "Coffee with a Cop" on December 21 in Melrose.

The event gives the public an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Jackson County neighborhoods.

The free event will be held at L&M Café, 405 N. Washington Street in Melrose, Wisconsin, from 9-11 a.m.

“We hope that community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers,” Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Duane Waldera said in a statement. “These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships.”
