Cops and Barbers In Grand Junction Colorado

"Cops and Barbers: Cops. Cuts. Conversation" is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 25, 2023. The event will be held at Bejarano's Barbering at 637 Main Street in Grand Junction.

The press release from the City of Grand Junction reads:

There is something about those chairs, the smell of after-shave, music, and laughter. Barber shops and salons are havens for conversation; news, politics, sports, you name it. It's a place where relationships are built, and we want to be a part of that!

You Are Encouraged To Attend

This is a personal recommendation from me to you. I make it a point to visit each of the GJPD's and Mesa County Sheriff's Office events. Typically, the agencies host "Coffee With a Cop." These gatherings are incredible. They're informal, fun, and an effective way to ask questions, get information and express concerns. No speeches; no agendas.

Five Reasons Why You Should Participate In This Grand Junction Colorado Event

There are countless reasons why you might want to participate in an event such as this. Here are five right off the top of my head:

  • It's your chance to meet Grand Junction's new Police Chief
  • Sometimes you have a concern or a question that doesn't necessarily warrant making a trip to the police department. This is the perfect opportunity to discuss your concerns with local authorities.
  • The casual atmosphere is the perfect environment where you can ask questions and express concerns one on one.
  • Not everything is an emergency. Sometimes you have ideas lingering in the back of your mind. When you bring these ideas up with those working day to day in law enforcement, you'll be amazed by the information they have to offer.
  • It's the perfect opportunity and environment to connect with local law enforcement.

Waylon's Bonus Reason To Attend

It's been a few months since my last haircut, and my boss has been telling me I look ridiculous and it's time to clean up. The alleged beard I'm sporting is amusing, to say the least. In addition to enjoying casual conversations with local police, it may benefit me to explore the wonders of the personal grooming options available at a barber shop.

Please Make Plans To Attend

This is somewhat reminiscent of Floyd's Barber Shop on the Andy Griffith Show. One can't even begin to estimate how many concerns were extinguished while Sheriff Taylor sat in the barber's chair at Floyd's. This may be precisely what we need in Grand Junction.
