The monthly Coffee With the Chief program was started in January 2016 by Chief Tom Lewis as a means to have open, relaxed communication with the public on any topic no rules and no defined structure. Typically, Tom will start the meeting with a small list of updates from the police department such as status on major investigations, any local crime trends or concerns and let the group know of any upcoming events or programs. After that, Tom takes questions and open discussion. The approximate one-hour meeting concludes with a coffee mug give-away and an offer to do a ride-along with one of Punta Gorda’s finest.
