ELPD Chief Kim Johnson to Kick Off Coffee with the Chief Series this Summer

EAST LANSING, Mich. — In an effort to enhance the East Lansing Police Department’s (ELPD) community outreach efforts, East Lansing Police Chief Kim Johnson is kicking off a Coffee with the Chief series this summer.

The Coffee with the Chief series will provide community members with an opportunity to have informal conversations with Chief Johnson at rotating locations throughout the East Lansing community. The coffee chats will kick off with quick updates on ELPD’s current events followed by an opportunity for community members to ask questions and discuss topics related to ELPD. 

“The basic foundation of community-oriented policing is establishing positive relationships with community members,” said Chief Johnson. “My hope is that these coffee chats will help to enhance our ongoing community outreach efforts and establish mutually beneficial relationships between the police department and the community members we serve.”

 Dates, times and locations for the Coffee with the Chief series are provided below: 

  • Thursday, July 15; 9:30-10:30 a.m. – Grand Traverse Pie Company (located in the Brookfield Plaza), 1403 E. Grand River Ave.
