Meet New Chief of Police Services at ‘Coffee with a Cop’ in Carpinteria

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department is holding a “Coffee with a Cop” event in Carpinteria from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Crushcakes and Café, 4945 Carpinteria Ave.

We invite you to come have coffee and conversation with the sheriff’s deputies assigned to the Coastal Operations Bureau.

The gathering is also a chance to meet the new chief of police services for the City of Carpinteria, Acting Lt. Mike Perkins, and to say thank you to Lt. Brad McVay, who is retiring in August after 30 years of service with the Sheriff’s Department.

McVay has acted as the chief of police services for Carpinteria for the past two years.

The Sheriff’s Department holds “Coffee with a Cop” gatherings routinely in different locations throughout Santa Barbara County. The idea behind the events is to give residents an opportunity to get to know deputies who work in their neighborhoods in a casual setting and bring up any questions or concerns.

We hope you can join us for this community outreach event.

— Kelly Hoover is a public information officer for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
