The Longmont Police Department is hosting their second Coffee with A Cop on Saturday, September 29th from 3-5 p.m. at Ziggi’s Coffee located at 400 Main St.

“Coffee With A Cop will be an “open forum” type event. It will not be structured or scripted as we want the interactions between officers and the citizens to be relaxed, casual and genuine. This event is designed to give the community the opportunity to get to know us better. We do hope to provide information on how we can work together to make Longmont an even safer community,” says Longmont Master Police Officer David Bonday.

The Longmont Police Department held their first Coffee with A Cop event on August 12, 2018 with 12 officers, including Chief Mike Bulter and Deputy Chief Jeff Satur. For the upcoming event Officer Bonday expects around the same number of officers to attend.

It is the goal of the Longmont Police Department to move Coffee with A Cop events around Longmont to offer easier access to all communities.

Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain Closed Monday-Wednesday September 17-January 31

Boulder County is closing the Ron Stewart Reserve at Rabbit Mountain every Monday-Wednesday from September 17 to January 31, with the exception of the December 20-30 timeframe.

The closure is due to limited hunting for a three-year elk management program. Currently, the program is beginning its second year. “This hunting program is solely and specifically permitted as a resource management tool,” states a Boulder County press release.

“Three hunters per week have be granted an access pass by Boulder County to hunt this specific area only during this management period. Each hunter was selected through a random drawing of CPW-licensed hunters who obtained the subunit antlerless license (hunt code E-F-020-L3-R) and who then declared interest in this program. Hunters were required to attend an orientation class and pass a shooting proficiency test.”

For more information about this program and the management goals at Ron Stewart Preserve, please visit or contact Jenny Dalton, Boulder County Parks & Open Space Elk Management Hunt Coordinator at, or 323-420-8551.
