The Indio Police Department is putting a twist on the usual “Coffee with a Cop” hosting “Cocoa with a Cop” Tuesday morning at Dunkin Donuts. Officers said it’s a way of encouraging the family to come out and meet them.

Indio Police brought their police dog, K-9 Mikey, who is a bomb sniffing dog, to meet the community. Officers said they wanted to make a good impression on children at an early age.

“There is nothing better than when you get to see the kids, their faces light up,” Sgt. Dan Marshall said. “This could be the first time they meet a police officer and how great is that for them to meet a police officer in an environment like this?”

News Channel Three’s and CBS Local 2’s Jeremy Chen has more on the impact the relationship between local kids and officers can bring to the community tonight.
