A half dozen of Patterson’s finest met up with a handful of residents to talk over different issues and get to one another in an informal friendly setting.
Patterson Police Sgt. Paul Yotsuya said the intent of the event is to provide a friendly atmosphere that encourages open communication between residents and police.
Modest and Ceres police departments have held similar events recently as well.
Yotsuya said there will be another coffee event to meet Patterson Police deputies in February.
