Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Here’s a good opportunity to meet Rochester’s new police chief - over a cup of coffee.

Police Chief Jim Franklin is kicking off a series of listening sessions that he has dubbed “Coffee With A Cop” later this month.

Franklin is planning to hold the first "coffee and conversation" session Dec. 19th at the St James Coffee shop. His guest will be Rochester City Attorney Jason Loos.

Franklin is also planning to conduct another session next month with incoming Rochester mayor Kim Norton.

Franklin says the sessions may eventually be held every quarter rather than monthly.
