Public Opinion Sought on City Council Election Districting Maps

The City of Exeter is seeking public comment on the Districting of City Council seats. To review the maps, you can download PDF files of the maps (links are below) or you can look at the interactive online version.

There are three options available:

Green: Downtown and east of Kaweah Avenue are each united in their own (separate) districts (B and E, respectively); the west side of town is drawn into reasonably compact districts; all five districts touch on the railroad corridor; District D keeps the heavily Latino area southwest of downtown united; (more…)

Coffee with a Cop in October

Exeter Police Department presents Coffee with a Cop on October 4th from 7 to 9 am at McDonalds, 1109 W. Visalia Rd., in Exeter. For information, call (559) 592-3103.

Coffee with a Cop was launched in Hawthorne California in 2010 as a result of a brainstorming session. Members of the Hawthorne Police Department were looking for ways to interact more successfully with the citizens they served each day.

Community policing has long been considered a framework for establishing trust between the community and the police. However, over time the character and composition of our nation’s communities have changed due to shifting demographics, more commuters, and the introduction of different communication methods such as websites and social media.

The Hawthorne Police Department hit upon a simple plan to break through the barriers that have built over the years—a cup of coffee.

In less than five years, Coffee with a Cop events have been hosted in all 50 states and is one of the most successful community-oriented policing programs across the country. The program has also expanded to outside the United States to Canada, Europe, Australia, and Africa. The key to Coffee with a Cop’s growing success is that it opens the door for interaction outside of the crisis situations that typically bring law enforcement officers and community members together.

A cup of coffee is a common bond. And, it can help officers build better relationships with the communities they serve.

Agenda Free

No speeches or specific topics. Just informal conversations about what matters to community residents.

No Barriers

Eliminate obstacles-such as radios, patrol cars and cell phones-for a short period of time to be more approachable and have relaxed conversations with the community.

Problem Solving

Coffee with a Cop events are opportunities to build relationships in order to better problem-solve with the people officers serve.
