Have you heard about our Fireside Five-Oh Program? We are pretty excited to keep offering this option in our community and encourage you to sign up for one.
What is a Fireside Five-Oh you might ask? - Lots of things - a chat, a party, a social hour, a conversation, a place of common ground. Mostly it's a chance to get together to meet friends and neighbors and the local cops who work in your neighborhood.
What do we talk about at these? - Whatever is on your mind! Maybe it's a specific neighborhood concern, maybe its curiosity about the men and women who choose to be Madison police officers. There is never a shortage of questions when it comes to policing.
Who can you invite to attend? - You decide. Friends, neighbors and family are all welcome to attend. One or two officers, the cops who work directly in your neighborhood, will also attend. A group with anywhere from 8-14 guests plus the officers seems to work best. It depends on the size group you can accommodate. And as your guests, we'll even bring treats! :)
Why is the Fireside Five-Oh held at your home? - Your home is your turf, not ours. Indoors or out, on the patio or in the family room, wherever you're most comfortable. The idea is to promote a more informal, intimate dialog. We want you and your guests to feel at ease so that meaningful conversation at a personal level begins to happen.

We hope to see you in your home soon!
